Many years ago, I read most of Goodis' paperback originals all in a row and wrote something for a fanzine about Goodis, relating him to the naturalists of the 19th century like Frank Norris, in whose books people were unable to escape their heredity and environment, no matter how hard they tried. It seemed clever at the time; fortunately, it's been lost for quite a while and isn't likely to be recovered.
