Product description

Review

"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

Praise for Dan Fante: "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."--New York Times

"A powerful read from a writer who's lived what he writes and writes what he lived, 86'd stands out as yet another example of Fante's unique voice and bottoms-up, scraped-off-the-sidewalk prose."--Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight --This text refers to the paperback edition.
