Nobody MoveBook - 2009 | 1st ed.
From the National Book Award-winning, bestselling author of "Tree of Smoke" comes a provocative thriller set in the American West. Nobody Move, which first appeared in the pages of Playboy, is the story of an assortment of lowlifes in Bakersfield, California, and their cat-and-mouse game over $2.3 million. Touched by echoes of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, "Nobody Move" is at once an homage to and a variation on literary form. It salutes one of our most enduring and popular genres--the American crime novel--but with a grisly humour and outrageousness that are Denis Johnson's own. Sexy, suspenseful, and above all entertaining, "Nobody Move" shows one of our greatest novelists at his versatile best.
