Ng comes to an endFull review here A surprising new find for me A How to Read the American City Close Up great collection of noir style mystery stories I knew of Cornell Woolrich vaguely from a writing credit on an episode of Darkroom Steps Going Up was turned into an episode I also know he wrote some Alfred Hitchcock plots But I really enjoyed every story in this collectionThe plots areood but it is the suspenseful build of each story that really rabs you You never know what is happening There are a few uirky coincidences In one story the narrator even points out a once in a lifetime coincidence Still it is the journey in these stories in a lifetime coincidence Still it is the journey in these stories I enjoyed My it is the journey in these stories that I enjoyed My was I Won t Take a Minute where a man waits outside an apartment building for his irlfriend who has stopped off just to drop off a package for her employer She never comes out leaving him in a panic to figure out what happenedOther Consumed: Food for a Finite Planet great ones are Steps Going Up about a man on death row whose only chance to live is a traditional pardonranted if the executioner dies Adventures of a Fountain Pen tells the twisted tale of an exploding pen that oes from hand to hand before doing its job Highly recommend the collection The unvarnished badness of the villains is what makes.
