which I will read next. A fellow classmate recommended it, and it lived up to the expectations. I grabbed this after seeing Bukowski constantly rant about Fante and Celine being the greatest writers ever, and I have already read Celine's: Journey To The End Of The Night which was mind blowing.
Maybe not the best starter Fante, but still good. Some people criticized this work because Fante's writing is too 'young' or 'immature' here. Despite being short, this book has rich material and is packed with great lines. Unfortunately, this is very much the lesser work. I would also like to mention that his son, Dan Fante, is a fantastic writer in the same vein. Review Quirky, stylish and often funny.
In this book he mines familiar territory, and while I still give it four stars, it is not quite as strong as the other titles I have read by him. It's funny and painful because it's so human and universal, no matter how specific his subject matter is.

It is about a boy fighting against his societal expectations.
This book is sad and enjoyable in many ways, which is a credit to Fante for making it impactful and authentic.
