CP website synopsis

Once upon a time Whitey was a crooner with a million-dollar voice and a standing invitation from any woman who heard him use it. Until he had the bad luck to fall for Celia. And then nothing would ever be the same.
       In Street of No Return David Goodis works the magic that made him one of the most distinctive voices in hard-boiled fiction, creating a claustrophobic universe in which wounded men and women collide with cataclysmic force. With a new introduction by Robert Polito and a bonus short story, Black Pudding. Limited to 300 cloth copies, each one is signed by Robert Polito.
