"Shoot the Piano Player" was for me a very interesting book. I don't think I've ever read anything quite like it. For me, the explosion of violence about two thirds of the way through the book was unexpected, quite riveting, and dominated the whole experience of reading the novel, though it's a relatively brief passage.

**************** This is the only Goodis I've read, and I thought it was excellent. There were character descriptions that took only two or three sentences and created both a sharp visual and psychological portrait of the person.
 I've got one or two others by him. I might give them a go one of these days.
