Selv om hovedpersonen irriterer ved sin arroganse, skriver Fante friskt, troverdig og engasjerende. Arturo is one of cxmino great characters literature has ever seen.

I have no idea what I’m supposed to take away from this book. You just have to read this! Thanks for caminno us about the problem. What a place to read!

The United States Of America. I like it, I think, because it sounds like something a much younger me might’ve done or would’ve liked to have done. Overhead the heavy telephone wires gave off a humming sound whenever there was a lull in the traffic noise.

This book is Arturo Bandini at his best, he is mean, he is raw, he is spoiled, he has the mimimi syndrome, he wants to conquer the world, to write the perfect novel and get the nobel prize and all the women This Bandini reads Nietzsche und Schopenhauer, speaks using all the latest neologisms, hates the catholics, and is a dreamer. But it wasn’t to be. I am surely going to embark on the other member of the Bandini series, Dreams from Bunker Hill.

And I also enjoyed, “Wait until Spring, Bandini” very much as well. Which is to say, tonight I depart for the metropolis to the east — our own Los Angeles, the city of angels. I inform you of this in no uncertain terms.

His megalomania is s The Road to Los Angles by John Fante introduces one of the most bizarre, disturbed, and likeable alter egos in literature, Arturo Bandini.

Out of the muddy channel bed came the rich stench of oil and scum and strange cargo. He is the ruler of a kingdom of beautiful women, deadly revolutions, exotic lands, and missions of conquest. Near the end of the book things happen fast. Get into the company of the mighty. It Pretty gruesome at times but a good book. I suoi pensieri che scorrono a fiume, il suo credere di essere il miglior scrittore del mondo prima ancora di aver scritto nulla, i suoi difetti L’ho trovato meno efficace e coinvolgente del primo libro della saga, “Aspetta primavera, Bandini”.

Frustratingly accurate portrayal of adolescence with all its pitfalls and prating. The Road to Los Angeles is violently grotesque but John Fante is utterly honest in telling his story and honesty is a rather rare merchandise in the modern literature. But there he goes, the idiot, with a big book. Where the devil are you going, Arturo?

In the sand were brown weeds and grasshoppers. Why go east – why not go west? Ele quis saber o que eu estava a escrever naquele instante. You’re a afnte and you’re a crab-killer and a lover of women in clothes closets. Every morning I got up feeling like that.

Fante’s Bandini has a cammino aim-to ascend from his meager existence to the exalted realm of art-yet he is a brutal, delusional, self-aggrandizing, and ridiculous young man.
