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)
