Review:

"Written of and from the gut and the heart . . . Fante was my god"

"A powerful and moving read" ( Guardian)

"A tough and beautifully realised tale - affecting, powerful and poignant" ( Time Out)

"Bandini is a magnificent creation, and his discovery is not before time" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"This stunning novel, as Charles Bukowski's 1980 foreword outlines, was the reason he became a writer. Is there any better recommendation?" ( Uncut)
