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 The New Independent Home he will go down inistory as the world s greatest man Unfortunately Kissing Galileo (Dear Professor, 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 A Prince Hall Masonic Quiz Book how Fante instills personality into inanimate objects that come to life in Bandini s warped mind The constant tension between the magnificent fantasy in Bandini sead and the reality of living in a ghetto is done to great effectJohn Fante wrote this in Aga(c)Silas 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 Crushing Low Stakes Poker heas 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 Disney Princess Learning to Count 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 Ella, The Slayer (Serenity House, 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 Modern Viking 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 is readings of Schopenhauer Nietzsche etc and what young man doesn t find fascination ere 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 ereBut this is a fun book and the characters as viewed through the lens of this l enfante terrible as e takes in is cannery boss this l enfante terrible as e takes in
