Taking Names: Banville to pen new Philip Marlowe novel
Question of the Day
Philip Marlowe soon will be back on the case.
The sleuth of such classic Raymond Chandler novels as “The Big Sleep” and “The Long Goodbye” will return in a new novel by John Banville.
Henry Holt and Co. announced Tuesday that the book, currently untitled, is scheduled for release next year, according to the Associated Press. It has been authorized by the estate of Chandler, who died in 1959, and will be set in Marlowe’s fictional Bay City.
Mr. Banville, 66, is an Irish author and Man Booker Prize winner. He will write under the pen name Benjamin Black, which he has used for previous crime novels. His current Benjamin Black novel, “Vengeance,” came out Tuesday.
They will be doing a 10-weekend run of shows at the Venetian starting Dec. 7.
The show is called “Soul2Soul,” named after their hugely successful co-headlining tours in 2000 and 2006. The Vegas shows will mark the first time in six years that Mr. McGraw and Miss Hill have performed a full concert together in the United States.
Pre-sale tickets go on sale Wednesday and open to the general public Monday.

Publicist Joy Fehily said in a brief email statement Monday that the 54-year-old actor “was just moved from the intensive care unit, but remains hospitalized” following his July 13 heart attack.
“His family are firm believers in the power of prayer and have asked that you keep him in yours during this time,” the statement said. No further information was available on Mr. Duncan’s condition.
