Joseph Goodrich - South of Sunset: Nine Plays

Author-dramatist Joseph Goodrich's drama PANIC won an Edgar from the Mystery Writers of America in 2008 for Best Play. Here Goodrich offers a selection of short early plays that draw on the traditions of modernism and noir. The episodes seethe with violence and desperation.  "There are no happy  endings," says Goodrich in his introduction.
