Noir novel by David Goodis, author of Cassidy’s Girl and Of Tender Sin. The novel is quoted to be said “as down and dirty as noir gets in its depiction of depressed, lost souls on the road to nowhere” and showcases Goodis’ signature ephemeral noir as unparalleled. The novel was adapted for the screen and was shot in 1984 in France as “Rue Barbare” translated in English as “Street of the Damned”.
