I read PRELUDE TO A CERTAIN MIDNIGHT a few years back and it certainly qualified as bleak, but I remember at least some of the cast of characters were likable, whereas with NIGHT & THE CITY everyone you're introduced to (in the first half of the book at least) is either reprehensible or pathetic and the main character, Harry Fabian is a pimp and blackmailer who is thoroughly dishonest with himself as well as everyone he meets--being stuck in his head can be pretty disturbing. I definitely recommend the book.
