The settings are absolutely vivid. Out of the muddy channel bed came the rich stench of oil and scum and strange cargo. Why go east – why not go west? This Arturo is not the charming kid from the first part and also not the more mature young adult from Ask the Dust.

Alcuni passi sono memorabili, altri non lasciano nulla. An eye for an eye. View all 4 comments. Get out there and look for what you’ll never find.

It never mattered, with a book under my arm, looking for a job. Ele quis saber o que eu estava a escrever jonn instante. This review is based on the Norwegian edition.

The callous vexations and perturbations of this night have subsequently resolved themselves to a state which precipitates me, Arturo Bandini, into a brobdingnagian and gargantuan decision.

Resta un ange,es senso di vuoto, quello che Bandini si sforza di riempire coi sogni. I’m a continuity stickler, so I struggled with the different family, circumstances and location of this family compared to the one in “Wait Until Spring, Bandini”.

Why do you go up this street and not that? Arturo Bandini ama leggere e questo lo rende, a me, simpatico This is a good book to read!

You’re a thief and you’re a crab-killer and a lover of women in clothes closets. Fui stupito di trovarcelo.

Overall I felt like Arturo’s sister when she read his first novel: What a place to read! A blinding magnesium flare, an elemental torchsong to precocious youth that, for all its down-and-dirty honesty and frustrated libido, manages to retain a charm and innocence that the instant gratification of cyber fanye has forever appropriated.

Found in the shelves of shared books at the resort. Get out there and look for what you’ll fnte find. Suitcase in hand, I walked down to the depot. I inform you of this in no uncertain terms. Un plauso dunque al personaggio, riuscitissimo.

Ti sfido a morsicarlo! The recklessness of youth drives him to take chances like a cocky bastard, but he has the writing ability to pull it off every time. Regarding the quality of the writing, Road to Los Angeles reads well and rings true-it’s straightforward, intimate, and jarring. I have no idea what I’m supposed to take away from this book.


I inform you of this in no uncertain terms. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. The primary problem of this being the protagonist, who’s quite as likable as the one in Ask the Dust or Wait Until Spring, Bandini.

Ho un debole per John Fante, inutile nasconderlo. This propels Arturo to even greater heights of anguish at first, but then he sucks it up, steals the family jewelry, pawns it, and heads up the road to L.
