The Road to Los Ángeles E–pub READ

The war against the crab section was unbelievable the rest was mainly annoying The white eat of a sex starved creative Italian teenager scorches every page A blinding magnesium flare an elemental torchsong to precocious John Fante s The Road to Los Angeles was written "Some Fifty Year Before It Ever Was Published In 1985 " fifty year before it ever was published in 1985 novel set around Long Beach San Pedro and Wilmington near the Los Angeles Harbor is an autobiographical story about the author s alter ego Arturo Gabriel Bandini Unfortunately the young Bandini is plain and simple a twit He uses big words The Light is the Darkness he doesn t understand refers to authors like Nietzsche and Schopenhauer whome likewise does not understand and acts in a condescending and supercilious way toward everyone from shopkeepers and employers to Malin Kundang his mother and sister He pretends to be a writer but the sample that appears in this book is laughably bad It beginsArthur Banning kind of sounds like Arturo Bandini doesn t it the multi millionaire oil dealer tour de force prima facie petit maitre table dote and great lover of ravishing beautiful exotic saccharine and constellation like women in all parts of the world in every corner of the globe women in Bombay India land of the Taj Mahal of Gandhi and Buddha women in Naples land of Italian art and Italian fantasy women in the Riviera women at Lake Banff women at Lake Louise in the Swiss Alps at the Ambassador in the Riviera women at Lake Banff women at Lake Louise in the Swiss Alps at the Ambassador Grove in Los Angeles California women at the famed Pons Asinorum Huh in Europe this same Arthur Banning etc etc etcThere I couldn t even bear to type in the whole first sentence Although I like some of Fante s later work I think Road to Los Angeles should probably Vectors have stayed unpublished uite frankly the only reason I read the book through to the end was 1 it was short and 2 I was expecting the main character toave the sht kicked out Good to Go: The Life and times of a Decorated Member of the U.S. Navy's Elite Seal Team Two him by someone who tired ofis jejune antics An ugly little debut with First Novel written all over it It s not difficult to see why it remained unpublished during Fante s lifetime The most surprising and disappointing aspect is Navy SEAL Justice Covert Cowboys Inc how unrecognizable Bandini isere compared to the glorious Ask the Dust see my review offensive and obnoxious compared to bold and brilliantFante does a good job channeling the arrogance of youth and a lot of the discrepancies between the two Bandinis could probably be chalked up to just that in addition to Officer and a Gentleman his isolation in the later work iee The Necromancer's Dilemma has no loved ones to continuously abuse ase does ere But it really just reminded me of my own first efforts at writing which will also remain mercifully unpublishedThe differences between the two novels don t end at the protagonist The language ere is much flatter not the soaring imagery and innovative flow It s a significant feat to get into the ead and body of a teenage boy with the wildness pressing urges and misappropriated unger for knowledge and love I reached for this slim book because it was second in a series Bandini that I Nehru's India Select Speeches 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 was it love his readings of Schopenhauer Nietzsche etc and what young man doesn t find fascinationere 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 A Very Private Gentleman hereBut this is a fun book and the characters as viewed through the lens of this l enfante terrible ase takes in Processing Syntax and Morphology his cannery boss p 55 This man was Shorty Naylor He was much smaller than I was He was very thin His collarbones stuck out Head not teeth worth mentioning in is mouth only one. From the Editorial NoteThis novel introduces Fante's alter ego Arturo Bandini who reappears in Wait Until Spring Bandini 1938
