Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0941543455, Paperback)Fiction. In this collection of 8 short fictions the author of A-GIN-PISSING-RAW-MEAT-DUEL-CARBURETOR-V8-SON-OF-A-BITCH FROM LOS ANGELES and CHUMP CHANGE gives "a running commentary on the truth behind Los Angeles's gleaming fa‡ade--a life of brief encounters, desperation, addiction and the chasm-sized distance between people. Dan Fante takes the traditional cab driver 'knowledge' to a deeper place fueled by raw emotion, wine-guzzling existentialism and fleetingly poetic epiphanies. Here, the City of Angels' halo has definitely slipped"--Time Out Magazine. The work of Dan Fante, son of author John Fante, has also been praised by John Fowles and likened to "the genius of Bukowski and Hubert Selby, JR."--Elle.
