Product description


"Dan Fante is an authentic literary outlaw."--New York Times

"Told in a free-flowing narrative style that features a number of memorable characters, Fante's novel is dark, bleak, gritty, and inventively vulgar. It's also honest, painful, and occasionally tender."--Booklist

Readers who don't hang up... won't be able to stop listening--New York Times

"...writing that is a violent lyrical blizzard...."--Uncut Magazine

" I can describe Dan Fante's work in one word... sublime."--Soud-Ouest, France.

"Fante is a brilliantly economical stylist . . . sad, bitter, yet somehow infused with hope."--The Face

"Fante offers moments that brush the genius of Bukowski and Hubert Selby, Jr."--Elle Magazine

"Fante's voice is strong, fun, smart and edgy and it makes 86'd a great read."--San Francisco Book Review

"If you like your prose vodka-soaked, soulful, and bleeding on the page, then Fante is your man."--Ben Meyers, 3AM Magazine

"With Fante, and his father before him, there are never any false feelings or pretentiousness in the work... you know he has been where he writes from, and judging by the sound of things, it has been one hell of a wild ride."--Sacramento Book Review

About the Author

Dan Fante is the author of the memoir Fante, the novels 86'd, Chump Change, Mooch, and Spitting Off Tall Buildings, and several books of poetry, short stories, and plays. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son.
