Editorial Reviews

Review

Quirky, stylish and often funny. * The List * Fante's writing has a freshness that should shame many of today's scribblers. * Sunday Herald * Disappointment, disaffection, alienation, anomie and angst are the stock-in-trade of the cult writer, and John Fante is a fine example. * The Times * Fante had a major effect upon me. Fante was my god. -- Charles Bukowski

About the Author

John Fante began writing in 1929 and published his first short story in 1932. His first novel, Wait Until Spring, Bandini, was published in 1938 and was the first of his Arturo Bandini series of novels, which also include The Road to Los Angeles and Ask the Dust. A prolific screenwriter, he was stricken with diabetes in 1955. Complications from the disease brought about his blindness in 1978 and, within two years, the amputation of both legs. He continued to write by dictation to his wife, Joyce, and published Dreams from Bunker Hill, the final installment of the Arturo Bandini series, in 1982. He died on May 8, 1983, at the age of seventy-four.
