The Forgotten Prince


Well, The Forgotten Prince of Noir, anyway.

Today would have been David Goodis‘ 99th birthday, had he lived that long.

I’ve mentioned Goodis a few times in this spot. And, a few years ago, I attended the “Retreat To Goodisville” – a yearly homage/pilgrimage held by ardent fans to visit some of David’s Philadelphia haunts.

I did a post about that trek when I tagged along in 2012, and included the slideshow above.

The gang will head out on the David Goodis 99th Birthday Hell Ride! this Saturday. I won’t be able to make it this year. Maybe I’ll hit it again next year, for David’s 100th.

In any case…Happy Birthday, David Goodis, Philadelphia’s Most Unknown Writer.
