About this item
Goodis (1917-1967) was a Philadelphia- born pulp expressionist who brought a jazzy style to his spare, passionate novels of mean streets and doomed protagonists: an innocent man railroaded for his wife's murder ( Dark Passage); an artist whose life turns nightmarish because of a cache of stolen money ( Nightfall); a dockworker seeking to comprehend his sister's brutal death ( The Moon in the Gutter); a petty criminal derailed by irresistible passion ( The Burglar); and a famous crooner scarred by violence and descending into dereliction ( Street of No Return). Long a cult favorite, Goodis now takes his place alongside Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett in the pantheon of classic American crime writers.
