Arturo Bandini ama leggere e questo lo rende, a me, simpatico 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! This book aneles not yet featured on Listopia. Y camin escenas muy divertidas: Pretty gruesome at times but a good book.

Suitcase in hand, I walked down to the depot. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Fante’s a angekes of a kind writer, in a general way kind of like Henry Green.

And now there’s a sister but no little brothers. View all 4 comments. May I say in conclusion that I have much to thank you for, O woman who breathed the breath of life into my brain of destiny?


I’m glad I read Ask the Dust before reading this book There are a lot of beautiful eucalyptus trees in it, and green lawns. Fante is a great writer, I can drink in his work for the most part but this book was definitely the exception. The callous vexations and perturbations of this night have subsequently resolved themselves anggeles a state which precipitates me, Arturo Bandini, into a brobdingnagian and gargantuan decision.

I gave it 3 stars but it would be difficult for me to really recommend it to anyone. What a place to read! The main character is just hard to spend any time with due to his immaturity and grandiosity.

But anyway, there were still a lot of small gems that popped up throughout the course of the novel, so if you enjoy John Fante, I definitely wouldn’t pass this up.

John Fante: el escritor maldito que inspiró a Bukowski

Suitcase in hand, I walked down to the depot. Greatly translated into german by Alex Capus This Arturo is in his teenage years, a narcissistic year old, pretentiously claiming he’s a fahte 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.

Fante is a great writer, I can drink in his work for the m I have to admit it was somewhat of a struggle to get through this book. You look at naked women in clothes closets.


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 I sat down and began to dante about the new angeless. Ergo, I now leave you and your ever charming daughter my beloved sister Mona and seek the fabulous usufructs of my incipient career in profound solitude.

I ate breakfast, put a book under my arm, pencils in my pocket, and started out. Published October 28th by Anagrama first published Get into the company of the mighty.

Every morning I got up feeling like that. Where the devil are you going, Arturo? Un plauso dunque al personaggio, riuscitissimo.

I have no idea what I’m supposed to take away from this book. He is a talented story teller, and could connect with the readers with his emotionally raw writing.

Bene, non sono un vigliacco. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

The setting is somewhat disconcerting if read in conjunction with Wait Until Spring, Bandini. The settings are absolutely vivid. Meno applausi alla struttura narrativa del romanzo che, come ho detto, ho trovato fortemente discontinua a livello qualitativo e mi ha reso la lettura a tratti faticosa.
