Hardbound in acetate dust jacket. First trade edition, one of 750 copies. Preface by Charles Bukowski. Presentation copy inscribed by the author in the year of publication: "Best wishes to S.P. Grossman John Fante 9/28/80." Fine in slightly rubbed acetate dust jacket. Signed copies, especially contemporary presentation copies, of the trade edition are far scarcer than the signed limited. Especially in this instance since Fante was in the hospital at the time---blind and with his legs amputated---so this is quite possibly the only copy of this book that he inscribed.

It is the story of Arturo Bandini, a young writer in 1930s Los Angeles who falls hard for the elusive, mocking, unstable Camilla Lopez, a Mexican waitress. Struggling to survive, he perseveres until, at last, his first novel is published. But the bright light of success is extinguished when Camilla has a nervous breakdown and disappears . . . and Bandini forever rejects the writer's life he fought so hard to attain. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 170 gr | 192 pp. Seller Inventory # K9780060822552
