Falling Angel - William Hjortsberg - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Falling Angel:

A man, in search of his Faustian self.

My favorite William Hjortsberg quote from the book:

"The tomb lies at the end of every path. Only the soul is immortal. Guard this treasure well. "

Questions to ponder while reading Falling Angel:

Does it count if you don't remember?

How well do you guard your soul?

My thoughts about Falling Angel:

The inspiration for the movie Angel Heart.

I love noir!!

Do not do voodoo.
