This book was overly angsty and tried way too hard to impress me with its grittiness. I constantly felt as though Fante was trying to punch me in the teeth just for the sake of punching me in the teeth. The character was inconsistent.

(Adding this to my library now though I read it some time ago--this title just now showed up as a recommendation and I want to confirm that yes, it's a good recommendation. ;-)

The hole that Bukowski left is fast being filled by daring authors like Dan Fante, Charlie Huston and Jerry Stahl, just to name a few. Fante gets it right, in that he describes the underbelly of L.A., as only one who has lived in it's flophouses and late night streets can. He's original and a voice to watch for in the future.
