    OK, what's with David Goodis? What was he about? Most importantly, was he really goodie?

    I have been most impressed with Cassidy's Girl. Why such a book has not become a classic that is read in schools is beyond me. In his telling and perspectives, Goodis is a quintessentially American writer. I would certainly include it in a curriculum, alongside Steinbeck, Faulkner and Dos Passos, for example.
