It might be a shambles of a story, a bust as a novel, but it’s a motherfucker of a book. This is a book about a boy’s angst first and a city second, with characters further down the list. I would recommend this book to, like, everyone.

To hell with that Hitler, this is more important than Hitler, this is about my book. The ending was good, only what was in the middle i. Una sera me ne stavo a sedere sul letto della mia stanza d’albergo, a Bunker Hill, nel cuore di Los Angeles. I’m just so tired of the mysterious, exotic, insert-brown-race-here love interest who tropes all over these old novels.

There’s also disconnection between Arutro and Camilla where a novelist like Fatne might’ve developed a connection. D Dec 28, Arturo is youngish, I guess, but the more he lied the longer he grew in the tooth.

John Fante knows how to tell his tale right and he writes both very convincingly and captivatingly. Unfortunately, this only serves as a tribute to Bukowski that he could read this and then write worthwhile fiction himself.

I don’t really know what allz point of this book was. Wanting to celebrate his success with Camilla, fate steps in. I’ve considered the possibility that this book actually takes place with a catatonic Bandini sitting in that dour Bunker Hill apartment, his synapses sparking out like burnt fuses, manufacturing this wild life of devastating failures punctuated by successes.

Wait, that’s Raymond Chandler He has a really cool way of describing LA, from the foggy streets to the dark beaches. View all 3 comments.

Was that all men looked for back in the day? But to me, the overt racism johj misogyny seemed gratuitous. Comments and reviews What are comments? It’s been said that Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake is a collection of all things in the wo Ask the Dust is about as good a book as has ever been written.

See all 3 questions about Chiedi alla polvere…. This book was published inso maybe back then this model wasn’t already played out. Ma niente di niente. Okay, I’m not so sure I buy the letting down of I’m the star of the movie and what can they do for me that settles on the two women he manages to bang by not running out of the room.


He’s also unreal in world goes on without you.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. It is in Fante’s book where his descriptions thrive. If they are thinking about him, laughing at him. Superlatives like those could work against the book’s vitality, which is palpable.

I libri possono uccidere. Books such as Ask the Dust seem to fall into the “hey, listen-to-me-becoming-a-great-writer” category. At least Bukowski was honest, and funny.

Come una droga, chiedete alla polvere. And I answer, the sea is back there, back in the reservoir of memory. That ending was superb. Arturo Bandini capisce tutto lui.

Everything is left to his poetic judgment. They’re both assholes too. I libri fanno male.
