Overview

When he finds out his father is in a coma, aspiring writer and part-time drunk Bruno Dante, fresh from the nuthouse, must head to Los Angeles for a fraught family reunion in Dan Fante’s Chump Change. Now back in print to coincide with the publication of his new novel, 86’d, Chump Change follows Bruno through the tension and stress of facing his family—and the inevitable, pain-dulling drinking that lands him naked in a stolen car with an underage hooker whose pimp has stolen his wallet. Chump Change is “an honest misfit’s view of America far too few know.” (John Fowles, author of The French Lieutenant’s Woman).

Fante just gets better the further he falls down the ladder of success. Living in the shadow of his writer father, he has taken up the challenge and found his own voice. He is one of our greatest writers and needs to be more widely read. I can't wait for more from him. His books read so fast, I just reread them, thy are that good.
