9780941543477: Kissed by a Fat Waitress

In the not-so-gentle hands of Dan Fante, this book of new poetry is more akin to surgery or the body shop than to the techniques of music and painting. Fante excises whole slices of life and lays them bare for us in inspect. Pain and self-mocking humor are the writer's tools here. He pries open and exposes his heart with the kindness of a hammer or crowbar. Indeed, what could be more ego-sizing than to have all pretense flattened, laying bare the raw self underneath?

About the Author:

Dan Fante began his writing career in his mid-forties after many years as a drunk. I went to a Christmas party in 1964 and sobered up sometime in the first week of January, 1986, says Fante. Fante writes poetry, plays, short stories and novels. He lives in Sedona, Arizona. He vows never to return to to the city of Los Angeles except at gunpoint or for the purpose of cremation. Dan Fante's books have been translated into many foreign languages.

Review:

Like Bukowski...Fante is an authentic literary outlaw. --New York Times Book Review

Dan Fante allows us a glimpse of the Southern California demimonde that surely escaped his father's attention. --Los Angeles Times Book Review

Fante offers moments that brush the genius of Bukowski and Hubert Selby, Jr. --Elle
