Product Details


The world's bleakest romantic comedy"--Los Angeles Times"An exuberant, extravagant chronicle of gestation which romps through to the final production of the Fante's firstborn in high Italianate style and immerses a succession of hair-raising to breast-beating sequences in tears -- and Chianti."--Kirkus"The universe of John Fante's fiction is so immediately moving, so poetically vivid, that it is hard to decide which is the greater quandary: that it went so long unrecognized, or that in the factitious worlds of publishing and Hollywood it is receiving such enormous recognition today."--Boston Review"Fante's disturbing, singular writing stands absolutely alone among American Depression and mid-century writers. He was always the equal, and often the better, of his recognized contemporaries: Fitzgerald, Steinbeck, West, Schulberg."--Neil Gordon"Charming and hilarious"--Salon"Fante was my god"--Charles Bukowski"Fante's best writing ... astonishingly wide-ranging and compressed"--London Review of Books
