The Road to Los Angles by John Fante introduces one of the most bizarre disturbed and likeable alter egos in literature Arturo Bandini The book takes place in 1930 s Los Angles primarily the rough neighborhoods around the arbor docks We are put in the mind of a young man suffering from the world s worst grandiosity complex Bandini is convinced Modern Viking he will go down inistory as the world s greatest man Unfortunately The Spirit of Intimacy he s from a dirt poor family and works a fish cannery His megalomania is severe to the point where it becomes absolute comedy He is the ruler of a kingdom of beautiful women deadly revolutions exotic lands and missions of conuest The real world is an inconvenienceThe psychological depth is superb Fante knowsow to illustrate the grinding gears of a neurotic mind The settings are absolutely vivid You can smell the piles of fish guts smearing the page The characters are fleshed out but what s truly interesting is ow Fante instills personality into inanimate objects that come to life in Bandini s warped mind The constant tension between the magnificent fantasy in Bandini s ead and the reality of living in a ghetto is done to great effectJohn Fante wrote this in The Amory Wars, Volume 1 his late twenties The youthful energy is apparent throughout the whole book The recklessness of youth drivesim to take chances like a cocky bastard but e as the writing ability to pull it off every time Fante really captures the essence of the grimy foggy streets of Los Angles and the blue collar lifestyle Charles Bukowski Mismatch (Love Match, has been uoted saying Fante was my god Fante is writer that goes straight for the jugular even when it comes to being a coward He s a writer that throws dog shit at the church The Road to Los Angles is a book that swingsard with crude impact and special brand of finesse Teenage angst just isn t done this good any It s a significant feat to get into the Family Wanted head and body of a teenage boy with the wildness pressing urges and misappropriatedunger for knowledge and love I reached for this slim book because it was second in a series Bandini that I Keys to Tulsa had started a year or so ago full disclosure I also needed a uick read to get to my next one which my wife was reading The rambling stream of consciousness of an 18 year old with an overly active imagination was at first unsettling I realized why Bukowski liked it with the unabashed utterance it gives to thoughts teetering on madness It is astonishing that this was published in the 1930 s surely far ahead of its time for American authors The leaflet says this was not published in real time but cobbled together into book form posthumously after the other two in the series were published Nonetheless it is a wild romp through the mind of an 18 year old father less boy in Los Angeles who s wild fantasies bringim much anguish in real life but who stubbornly feeds them and unabashedly follows where they lead At times they were Walter Mitty like where e is the exalted lover savior etc What is truly ilarious about this book is the author s assumption of the character of an over read uneducated boy who uses long words poorly understood from Crush (Awkward, his readings of Schopenhauer Nietzsche etc and what young man doesn t find fascinationere This aspect is a clever device by Fante showing us the conflict of ego in a boy who is blissfully out of context and absolutely intolerable to be around Mental illness and obsession are clearly issues مهارت در بازی زندگی hereBut this is a fun book and the characters as viewed through the lens of this l enfante terrible ase takes in The Dragon in the Clock Box his cannery boss p 55 This man was Shorty Naylor He was much smaller than I was He was very thin His collarbones stuck out Head not teeth worth mentioning in My Amazing Dinosaur (Tib Tumtum, his mouth only one or two which were worse than nothing His eyes were like aged oysers on a sheet of newspaper Tobacco juice caked the corners ofis mouth like dry chocolate His was the look of a rat in waiting It seemed e ad never been out in the sun Bloods a Rover (American Underworld Trilogy his face was so grey Hedidn t look at my face but at my belly I wondered whate saw there And moments of blissful freedom finally from our warped protagonist p 120 Al doilea volum al tetralogiei care il are ca protagonist pe Arturo Bandini „Drumul spre Los Angeles” poate fi asezat pe acel raft de literatura universala absolut seducator al marilor debuturi damnate Nascut prematur in 1933 intr o America a tuturor prejudecatilor romanul a fost publicat dupa cincizeci de ani la scurt timp de la moartea autorului impunandu l drept una dintre cele mai pu.

Ys is unhinged It drives the reader on relentlessly Charles Bukowski considered John Fante to be one of is literary gods and I can see some of Fante s influence on is writing The next book in this sage is Ask the Dust considered to be Fante s masterpiece I read it decades ago and still remember the gist of the story but after reading the two books that precede it I m looking forward to rereading it with the context of Bandini s earlier life For most readers they should read Ask the Dust and not worry about the other three books in the uartet but the unflinching onesty with which Fante presents is alter ego Arturo Bandini in the earlier books is inspiring As e gives us Bandini The Book of Revelation he is beratingimself as well If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also ave a Facebook blogger page at and an Instagram account I found a used copy of this book the other day and this was inscribed on the title pageThe part about fish canaries made me smile as it conjured some peculiar images of ybrid ornitho ichthyological species in my Practical Prinkery head bute obviously meant fish canneries which figure strongly in the book This stolen inscription will serve as my review because it s probably better than anything I would write I d like to find out who Whit and Chuck are maybe someone will recognize this John Fante s The Road to Los Angeles was written some fifty year before it ever was published in 1985 The novel set around Long Beach San Pedro and Wilmington near the Los Angeles Harbor is an autobiographical story about the author s alter ego Arturo Gabriel Bandini Unfortunately the young Bandini is plain and simple a twit He uses big words e doesn t understand refers to authors like Nietzsche and Schopenhauer whom e likewise does not understand and acts in a condescending and supercilious way toward everyone from shopkeepers and employers to The Art of Not Breathing his mother and sister He pretends to be a writer but the sample that appears in this book is laughably bad It beginsArthur Banning kind of sounds like Arturo Ba There are the roads we choose and there are the roads we walk and there are the walks of lifeOh Spengler What a book What weight Like the Los Angeles Telephone Directory Day after day I read it never understanding it never caring either but reading it because I liked one growling word after another marching across pages with somber mysterious rumblingsRiotously ambitious wildly egotistic possessed with the severe angst of youth ridden with delirious fantasies obsessed with the maniacal desire to become a writer Arturo Bandini turnsis life into a bitter burlesue But Cupcakes, Lies, and Dead Guys (Annie Graceland Mystery however erraticallye continues to move to A Peoples Tragedy his purpose The Road to Los Angeles is violently grotesue but John Fante is utterlyonest in telling is story and onesty is a rather rare merchandise in the modern literature Well deserved 5 stars This was Fante s first Bandini book which got to be published first in the 80s after Fante s death due to Charles Bukowski In the 30s when written it was refused by all publishers This book is Arturo Bandini at Deadly Fallout (Red Stone Security, his beste is mean Akshyay Mulberry Vol.One he is rawe is spoiled e as the mimimi syndrome Devils Gate he wants to conuer the world to write the perfect novel and get the nobel prize and all the womenThis Bandini reads Nietzsche und Schopenhauer speaks using all the latest neologismsates the catholics and is a dreamerFante wrote this book at 25 and with 25 The Old Myers Place (Halloween, he wrote an outstanding novel Arturo is one of the great characters literatureas ever seenThere are 2 Bandini novels but according to Alex Capus who translated them into german this one is the only book where Arturo is completely raw and unpolished He also swears a lotDefinitely a must Greatly translated into german by Alex Capus An ugly little debut with First Novel written all over it It s not difficult to see why it remained unpublished during Fante s lifetime The most surprising and disappointing aspect is Witcheskin how unrecognizable Bandini isere compared to the glorious Ask the Dust see my review offensive and obnoxious c the war against the crab section was unbelievable the rest was mainly annoying. Ri si lecturi mai rafinate Cand Superman de banda desenata cand supraom nietzschean Bandini lucreaza intr o fabrica de conserve vorbeste ca un literat de mare clasa citeste filozofi absconsi se indragosteste de mirosuri sau de bete de chibrit lasate in urma de femei frumoase si cel mai important viseaza sa schimbe fata lumii Ca alter ego al scriitorului John Fante se poate spune ca si reuses.
