Overview


Poetry. In this searing collection of poetry by the author of CHUMP CHANGE, Fante tracks twenty years of excess: booze, drugs, and women. He infuses his poetry with bawdy humor, philosophical sensibilities, and tales of private hell of his own making. His distinct voice reads like short stories from his diary pages, with glimpses of his travels, women, friends, and most memorably, the haunts of his famous father, the author John Fante. The poems are complemented with the unique paintings and drawings from the diary collection of his friend, Michael Napper. Foreword by Joyce Fante and introduction by Ben Pleasants.
