Love this novel by John Fante as well! Go sit under a eucalyptus tree reading a book looking for a job. An eye for an eye.
The recklessness of cante drives him to take chances like a cocky bastard, but he has the writing ability to pull it off every time. Read while in Belize.
You’re a thief and you’re a crab-killer anveles a lover of women in clothes closets. The nights were nights and nothing else. The setting is somewhat disconcerting if read in conjunction with Wait Until Spring, Bandini.
