Arturo Bandini arrives in Los Angeles with big dreams. But the reality he finds is a city gripped by poverty.

When he makes a small fortune from the publication of a short story, he reinvents himself, indulging in expensive clothes, fine food and downtown strip clubs. But Bandini's delusions take a worrying turn when he is drawn into a relationship with Camilla Lopez, a beautiful but troubled young woman who will be responsible for his greatest downfall.

Ask the Dust is an unforgettable novel about outsiders looking in on a town built on celluloid dreams.

Review:

"Written of and from the gut and the heart . . . Fante was my god" (Charles Bukowski)

"A powerful and moving read" (Guardian)

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

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

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

Book Description:

One of the great novels of L.A., a semi-autobiographical story of a struggling writer ('Fante was my God', Charles Bukowski)
