The Road to Los ÁngelesT over the fact that this was the reatest "hatred of all my life He revels in the depths of his emotions The only "of all my life He revels in the depths of his emotions The only that Bandini reacts to anything is with white hot anger He is too short and man does that piss him off His sister is taller than him which irritates him but her insistence on becoming a nun infuriates him She also has this sexy taut ass that taunts him like an undulating mirage in his sexual desert She knows he is a blowhard and can cut through his spun web of lies like a wise reverend mother Women don t pay attention to him except when he is heaving his Decade of Despair guts up at the fish factory or doing something strange and unsettling To say he is sexually frustrated is like saying the pope is CatholicThere is this humbling moment as he works the line at the fish factory that is like an arrow finding the chink in his armour of rage She came with a man who had an elegant mustache and wore spats Later I found out his name was Hugo He owned the cannery as well as one on Terminal Island and another in Monterey Nobody knew who theirl was She clung to his arm sickened by the odor I knew she didn t like the place She was a What Was Lost girl of not than twenty She wore areen coat Her back was perfectly arched like a barrel stave and she wore high white shoes Together she and Hugo walked away At the door the Go-Go-Go! girl turned to look at us I put my head down not wanting to be seen by one so lovely among those Mexicans and Filipinos Working at the fish factory he always smells of mackerel He washes and scrubs himself until helows pink but the smell lingers on his skin like a permanent stain It further isolates him from those around him People move away from him in movie theaters He s a social pariah which only isolates him and feeds his anger He has no Somato Respiratory Integration Workbook gear shift for his rage It s high octane fourthear the whole way I hated him so much I could have bitten off his finger and spat in his face He revels in his #Anger His Anger Feeds #His anger feeds like a feast He is a pompous ass As his mother says You re nothing but a boy who s read too many books I ve been accused of that many times and was freuently told that I only used unfamiliar words to make people feel stupid but what it really was was me trying to apply what I read to my real life I wanted to try out words so that they became part of my permanent lexicon Bandini is doing the same though he uses words like bludgeons He s hard to like I ve felt brief flashes of the anger he feels all the time I understand his frustrations but as he swings wildly at the world he is childishly prejudicial against the people around him He is as judgemental as the people he accuses of judging him This book in many ways is unhinged It drives the reader on relentlessly Charles Bukowski considered John Fante to be one of his literary Reine Mädchensache gods and I can see some of Fante s influence on his 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 theist 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 honesty with which Fante presents his alter ego Arturo Bandini in the earlier books is inspiring As he Animal Babies gives us Bandini he is berating himself as well If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at and an Instagram account Well deserved 5 stars This was Fante s first Bandini book whichot to be published first in the 80s after Fante s death due to Charles Buko. Ternice si originale voci ale literaturii americane din secolul XXArturo Bandini are douazeci de ani si este regele crabilor din olful Los Angeles pe care nu se sfieste sa i decimeze la cea mai mica sfidare Geniu autoproclamat si in acelasi timp aspirant terorizat de ideea posibilei sale mediocritati el bate la poarta faimei scriitoricesti mondiale Este un Holden Caulfield cu ambitii mai ma. Wski In the 30s when written it was refused by all publishers This book is Arturo Bandini at his best he is mean he is raw he is spoiled he has the mimimi syndrome he wants to conuer the world to write the perfect novel and et the nobel prize and all the womenThis Bandini reads Nietzsche und Schopenhauer speaks using all the latest neologisms hates the catholics and is a dreamerFante wrote this book at 25 and with 25 he wrote an outstanding novel Arturo is one of the qasas-ul-quran great characters literature has ever seenThere are 2 Bandini novels but according to Alex Capus who translated them intoerman this one is the only book where Arturo is completely raw and unpolished He also swears a lotDefinitely a must Greatly translated into erman by Alex Capus It s a significant feat to et into the head and body of a teenage boy with the wildness pressing urges and misappropriated hunger for knowledge and love I reached for this slim book because it was second in a series Bandini that I had started a year or so ago full disclosure I also needed a uick read to Dead-End Road Mysteries 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 itives 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 posthumously after the other 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 bring him much anguish in real life but who stubbornly feeds #Angeles who s wild fantasies bring him much anguish in real life but who stubbornly feeds and unabashedly follows where they lead At times they were Walter Mitty like where he is the exalted lover savior etc What is truly hilarious about this book is the author s assumption of the character of an over read uneducated boy who uses long words poorly understood from his readings of Schopenhauer Nietzsche etc and what young man doesn t find fascination here 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 hereBut this is a fun book and the characters as viewed through the lens of this l enfante terrible as he takes in 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 He had not teeth worth mentioning in 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 of his mouth like dry chocolate His was the look of a rat in waiting It seemed he had never been out in the sun his face was so rey Hedidn t look at my face but at my belly I wondered what he saw there And moments of blissful freedom finally from our warped protagonist p 120 I felt deliriously and impossibly happy There was the smell of the sea the clean salted sweetness of the air the cold cynical indifference of the starts the sudden laughing intimacy of the streets the brazen opulence of light in darkness the lowing languor of slitted crescent moon I loved it all I felt like suealing making ueer noises new noises in my throat It was like walking naked through a valley of beautiful irls on all sides John Fante s The Road to Los Angeles was written some fifty year before it ever was published in 1985 The novel 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. ,
