This Arturo is in his teenage years, a narcissistic year old, pretentiously claiming he’s a soulmate of philosophers, he doesn’t really understand, dreaming of naked ladies from his porno magazines, while incapable to approach real women and a complete pain in the ass to everyone he interacts with, annoying them with pseudo-intellectual babbling.

Read while in Belize. Think of what you are, my boy! Riotously ambitious, wildly egotistic, possessed with the severe angst of youth, ridden with delirious fantasies, obsessed with the mania There are the roads we choose and there are the roads we walk and there are the walks of life… Oh Spengler! Get into the company of the mighty.

John Fante: el escritor maldito que inspiró a Bukowski

You look at naked women in clothes closets. Then I suppose many of us who have had frustrated dreams could read this novel and find it tragic as well. All in all, a decent first effort by a writer who thankfully got better with age. One of my favorites, by one if my favorite authors.

Want to Read saving…. The days didn’t change from one to the other, the golden sun blasting away then dying out.

Second chronologically in the Bandini quartet, Bandini himself is familiar: There are a lot of beautiful eucalyptus trees in it, and green lawns. Just got this from the local library on an inter-library loan so I’ll need to put it at the head of the reading line. I have made the lamentable discovery over a period of years that living with you and Mona is deleterious to the high and magnanimous purpose of Art, and I repeat to you in no uncertain terms that I am an artist, a creator beyond question.

During each episode in his crazed wanderings through the tough dockside streets of s Los Angeles, I fervently wished he’d been transplanted to his spiritual homeland, tearing through the cobblestoned communities of Southern Italy. You’ll never find a job!


Den norske oversettelsen flyter bra.
