Nightfall Ñ Ticity only makes them terrifyingDavid Goodis 1917–1967 a former pulp radio and Hollywood script writer is now recognized as a leading author of crime fiction Besides sojourns in New York City and Hollywood he lived primarily in Philadelphia. What happens in this book could be described as missing time combined in the end with the kind of psychological explanation they loved in the 1940s and 50sThe third book I read by Goodis was Dark Passage and I became convinced that the main character in that was dead that he had died in the opening scenes It's a very surreal book Characters reappear with a dreamlike logic But I guess in truth I was thinking of certain movies where you realize the protagonist is dead Jacob's Ladder Mulholland Drive even Lisa and the Devil Then I read the next two novels in the Goodis Library of the Americas book The Burglar and this Nightfall And now I see that Goodis is just a very symbolic even utterly non literal writer Dreamlike aspects include Colors Cabdrivers and Conversation with the dead or people who are not there It's making me rethink those first two of his I read Shoot The Piano Player was originally titled Down There and I wondered what it could mean Now I think maybe he meant Hell Download ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ David Goodis
