RARA-AVIS: Willeford and Goodis?

Does anyone know if Willeford ever acknowledged reading or having been influenced by David Goodis?

I was really struck recently when reading Willeford's 'Pick Up' how close in style, theme and subject matter -- except for the twist ending -- it was to Goodis's work.

Anyone else have the same reaction?
