    Good

    Like Ask the Dust, this book has a lot of interesting situations and some gritty humor. Although this book isn't too long, in its pages it captures the reader enough to pull him in, digest, and let you slowly out, leaving the reader with a few things to ponder over.

    An introduction to superior prose.

    This was my first John Fante read. I was so pleased that I have ordered several more samples of his writing and I intend to read his complete works.

    An edgier 'Confederacy of Dunces'

    This book was suprisingly captivating for its length...I found many parallels to the character and story of Tooles Pulitzer Prize winning classic. Great to read about San Pedro in the 1930's.

    the Road to Los Angeles

    John Fantes 'the road to Los Angeles' is a brilliant piece of work. It was written late in his life and is partly conjoined with his earlier tales featuring his alter ego Bandini. In this book, though Bandini is set in a different family environment. The issues are the struggle of youth and the balancing of talent against personal pride. It is a heart gripping story and a must read for litterature lovers.
