Agony Club is an underground casino from the last Philip Marlowe detective novel by Raymond Chandler, started in 1958.  Left unfinished at the time of his death, it was completed by Robert B. Parker in 1988.  The ‘K’ is a reference to Rainer Werner Fassbinder, whose films embody the idea of the popular esoteric, which frequently feature some kind of staged performance.  A.K. is also the documentary by Chris Marker on Akira Kurosawa, made in 1985.
