Less crime than psycho pulp this is an atmospheric journey through the rapid decay 11th hour redemption of a normal guy a semi professional working stiff in Philadelphia who is suddenly swarmed by his own demons Dirty demons with platinum blonde hair Atmospheric typically means evocations of environment street scenes smoky bars with solitary degenerates on stools drug dens all well delineated in this book but the real atmosphere here is internal as the bulk of the action is a result of sudden mental takeovers by repressed memories and obsessions and buried guilt and how these voracious demons warp one's environment and darken one's course through lifeThis bears some comparison to many narratives from and about its era the 50's as the bright veneer of upright responsible nest egged married professionals is stripped back to reveal the putrid nest of Freudian worms gnawing away at the interiors; all well and good but there's something else here a desperate personal authenticity that makes it compulsively readable and frightening and the main character the locus of terrors pathetic and pitiable

This is not so much crime noir as psycho noir It is the second Goodis book I've read that featured a protagonist with incestuous overtones towards his sister and also the second Goodis book that also channels Malcom Lowry's Under the Volcano but these are not the same books so that makes three a menage a trois of incest and Lowry esue out of the headness Need to read to confirm but think Goodis had a fixation The protagonist in this novel seems mental for most of the book and that is never resolved The novel ends but really it just stops The protag is basically in the same place as in the beginning Yes he may know something about the platinum blonde woman women Yes he may know whom his wife has been calling But we readers are really in no better place to make a decision on our protagonist's state of mind or fate than at the beginning The psychological torment continues from beginning end So on that criteria this is a superb psychological noir where the dilemma facing the protagonist never really gets solved For a book written in 1952 A solid candidate for the existentialist canonOh and there is an amazing scene involving a scalping with bare hands Surely that is a one of a kind
