Paying homage to the hardboiled crime novel genre while infusing the novel with his grisly humor and lasciviousness, Denis Johnson presents Nobody Move. In Bakersfield, California, a bumbling group of lowly misfits compete against one another for a multimillion-dollar payday.
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 does so with a grisly humor 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.
