From the Back Cover
Dan Fante's anti-hero, Bruno Dante is back. Ten months after the death of his legendary father, he has cleaned himself up, straightened out, and is back on the wagon.
Dante is also back on the mooch, selling computer supplies for an all-American straight guy in a company staffed with a motley crew of ex-addicts and alcoholics.
But when Orbit Computer Supplies hires the beautiful Jimmi Valiente, a Mexican femme fatale with a gang-banger background, Dante's world once again prepares to go into free fall.
Like the Oscar-winning movie, American Beauty, Dan Fante's Mooch is another nail hammered straight into the heart of the American Dream. And like his superb debut novel, Chump Change, Mooch provides further proof that Fante is a contemporary writer of enormous power, pathos, humanity and humour.
