    Dave Z:

    "I've read most of Willeford, and I'm having a hard time coming up with any
    "fall from grace" type noir from him, and would put him clearly in the nihilistic category."

    I agree. What grace was there for the guy in THE WOMAN CHASER?

    One might call Willeford absurdist, though, not "only" nihilistic.
