A Memoir
A non fiction book by

 
 
"Dan Fante is an authentic literary outlaw." - New York TimesFrom Dan Fante, son of novelist John Fante, comes an exploration of his family's legacy - one of boozing, passion, writing, and survival. Long before his father achieved literary recognition for Ask the Dust or The Road to Los Angeles, and before Dan had conceived his novels 86'd, Chump Change, and Mooch, their difficult relationship as father and son evolved in a household where love and literary artistry were often overshadowed by emotional violence. Fante is the story of Dan's struggle to find his own voice amidst the madness of his family's dark inheritance, a memoir of his escape from his own vices and his eventual return to Los Angeles to embrace the man - and the calling - that once had driven him away.
