A long-lost spoof written by Raymond Chandler will see new light this month.
“Advice to an Employer,” which pokes fun at corporate culture, is believed to have been written between 1950 and 1954, reports the Guardian.
Having been found among Chandler’s papers in Oxford’s Bodleian Library, the humorous work will be published in Strand magazine this month.
