John WranovicsDan Fante’s world is unremittingly ugly, but like Ishmael he has lived to tell the tale. In his father’s novel The Road to Los Angeles, Bandini’s Filipino co-workers command him to “go home and write book about puke.” Dan Fante has. Luckily, this writer has the telemarketer’s skill for keeping the mooch on the line: readers who don’t hang up right away very likely won’t be able to stop listening. Those readers may end up feeling a bit corrupted themselves, but they’ll probably finish this collection of unapologetic confessions in a single sitting.
