Someone noted that Woolrich's novels aren't the
"gritty" sort of noir we normally expect from the Gold Medal srot of writers. But the skewed psychology that Woolrich employs in his characters -- their compulsion to act in ways that not always follow "normal" logic
-- makes these books very compelling. Once I start reading one, I always finish it.
