    Dreams from Bunker Hill Characters ï E-book or Kindle E-pub Dreams from Bunker HillHonestly I'm pretty devastated that never again will I be able to experience reading a Bandini book for the first time

    Dreams from Bunker Hill Characters ï E-book or Kindle E-pub Dreams from Bunker HillIt's slim otherwise 5 starsIf you fancy being a writer someday this is the book for you This author bursts with brilliance of post war Los Angeles Cannery row but from the eyes of a young artist The great fear and uncertainty of not knowing if you truly have talent or even if you do whether it will be recognized is overwhelming to the protagonist Arturo Bandino is to John Fante as Henry Chinaski is to Charles Bukowski This is how they tell their lives of being an author of integrity all the while eking out a life that vacillates between euphoric contentment and brutal depression This book my fourth of his explains why Bukowski liked him so much I’ve read most of his It is about an author trying to be as great as the people who inspired him Sherwood Anderson Hamsun London etc and making a living at it His young lust for beautiful women especially their behinds builds until it ultimately explodes in humiliating defeat often agonizing

    Dreams from Bunker Hill Characters ï E-book or Kindle E-pub Dreams from Bunker HillThis my fourth John Fante book over the last couple months and Dreams From Bunker Hill is the novel that makes the Bukowski connection most apparent I'd argue that Fante does the broke writer novel better than Bukowski but the latter goes over the top and wrote through a different period and in turn got attention Dreams of Bunker Hill is funny than sad but lives on both ends of the spectrum There's one scene where Fante insults a famous writer no name here spoilers and all that and HIDES FROM HIM IN A RESTAURANT PARKING LOT Sorry I'm not telling the anedote well of course but it's great Add a eastern European wrestler a hot secretary in a film studio and a return trip to Boulder because well no Fante except maybe Ask the Dust in my experience is comple

    Dreams from Bunker Hill Characters ï E-book or Kindle E-pub Dreams from Bunker HillCharming FastI won’t be breaking new ground with this review but I think adding to the heap of what others have said might convince someone else to read this brief pleasant walk down the Hollywood of days pastThis felt like bukowski lite It’s less gritty it’s less crass no one really farts or has stained underwear Arturo is about 34 the incorrigible pervert Chinowski is Instead of being dirt poor and scraping by with nothing but booze and women and writing this is like a look at if

    Dreams from Bunker Hill Characters ï E-book or Kindle E-pub Dreams from Bunker HillGot this today in a book exchange with a fellow Goodreads er The final installment in the Bandini uartet Can't wait Fante is a godof sortsFinally got going on this last night and it's pretty awesomeof course This book is the finale of the Bandini uartet and finds Arturo still only 21 years old getting started in his film writing career Funny he gets paid wads of cash for writing nothing He's the producer guy's back up writer what ever that is Though he lived in LA mostall of his adult life Fante' never had a high opinion of Hollywood The emotional tone is a bit subdued in comparison to the fever pitch of the first three Bandini books but this one was written 50 years after those Fante' wro

    Dreams from Bunker Hill Characters ï E-book or Kindle E-pub Dreams from Bunker HillAnother brief but enjoyable journey to old Los Angeles with Fante and alter ego Arturo Bandini Arturo is adult and even keeled although I imagine that this novel can't take place too long after Ask the Dust Bunker Hill is still Arturo's stomping ground though we get to journey with him to Hollywood the neighborhood and the industry His partnership with a name dropping scr

    Dreams from Bunker Hill Characters ï E-book or Kindle E-pub Dreams from Bunker HillI'm afraid this particular flavor of realism is unfashionable in America now Too phallocentric perhaps a fair enough assessment to be honest and too directly working class and rough pawed to pass muster with the nation's painfully upper middle class publishing world and altogether too dark and unfriendly with too much fuck you in it to ever pass the Pulitzer committeeFante was one of those writers who proudly inhabited the margins of American society and his writing was all the stronger for it While he's mostly known in reference to his disciple Bukowski Fante is far and away the better writer and there's heart in one paragr

    Dreams from Bunker Hill Characters ï E-book or Kindle E-pub Dreams from Bunker HillSome fourteen years since I stumbled across Fante's 'Ask the Dust' as an eighteen year old Arturo Bandini remains my favourite literary creation and 'Dreams from Bunker Hill' remains one of my favourite novels Magical prose at work here and such wonderfully wry comedy Ah Bandini
