Goodis, David: Cassidy's Girl. v1. 10 July 07

An absolute classic noir novel. In fact, just about anything by David Goodis is classic noir.

Here's one opinion on this book:

"David Cassidy is caught between two women. One woman, an alcoholic lost soul emanating good represents a second shot at former greatness. The other woman, voluptuous and iron willed drives his dark lusts, offers him bodily bliss and inevitable doom. Of course, the usual array of bums, losers, rummy philosophers and tender-hearted whores populate this work, giving the book that dreary, broken bottle, rainy sky, desolate and realistic feel of forlorn hope. Goodis is to NOIR what Poe was to horror, that is to say that Goodis transcends genre, concerning himself less with plot and stereotypes of stupid cops, sadistic killers and tough guy PIs but more about revealing the alchemy of the dark desires that drive the human spirit away from happiness and towards self-destruction."

I hope you like it; - Give him a read and see if this is your type of fiction. Goodis really does transcend the noir genre, or perhaps elevates it to heights unknown.

When I first saw the title of this thread, I read it as David Cassidy's Girl. And I was thinking, who would want to read something like that?

And the next question that suggests itself is: "which one?" (of his girls, I mean)
