One thinks of Marie in "Mind Over Murder," subjecting the man she loves to nightmare atrocities in order to destroy his marriage; of the terrifying interplay between the hallucinogen-crazed King Turner and his estranged wife in "Marihuana"; and of those most typical Woolrichian dark lovers, the avenging angels. For when one loves another intensely, that love can beget a raging drive to redress an atrocity against the beloved, which in turn begets new atrocities of its own. Thus in _The Bride Wore Black_ an ice-cold widow spends years tracking down and killing the four men she wrongly blamed for killing her bridegroom on the church steps.
Woolrich's silence in the Fifties was probably connected with the prolonged illness of his mother: having spent most of his life trapped in an intense, almost pathological love-hate relationship with her, he was unable to function during the last years of her life. Indeed on several occasions he passed off slightly updated old stories as new work, fooling both book and magazine publishers as well as the public. Thus the jackets on _Nightmare_ and _Violence_, two collections of Woolrich's short fiction issued by Dodd Mead in 1956 and 1958, claimed that each book included two stories never published before, whereas in fact all the stories had appeared in magazines earlier; nevertheless these collections performed a great service in returning to print not only such fine stories as "I'll Take You Home, Kathleen" (originally titled "One Last Night") and "Don't Wait Up for Me Tonight" (originally entitled "Goodbye, New York") but also those supreme masterworks "Three O'Clock" and "Guillotine" ("Men Must Die").
Woolrich showed the manuscript of one of these novels to Whit Burnett, who had published some of his shorter fiction in Story, and Burnett showed it to the editors at J. B. Lippincott, who agreed to publish it. Since Simon & Schuster, then publishing the _Black_ books, had exclusive right to use the name Cornell Woolrich, a pseudonym was needed; and together Woolrich and Burnett came up with one. The name they hit upon was William Irish. Had Woolrich met that obscure First National title writer thirteen years before, perhaps at a Hollywood party, and had he been carrying the man's name around in the back of his mind ever since?
