About this Item

First edition, one of only 500 hardcover trade copies. With a photograph of the author, title-page printed in blue and red. 8vo, in the publisher's original binding of decorated and coloured paper over boards backed in black cloth with a paper label on the spine, in the original acetate dustjacket. 147, [3] pp. A very fine copy, essentially as mint but for a tiny bit of shelf evidence to the bottom edge of the board, the original acetate jacket present and in fine order but for a touch of mellowing. THE LAST COMPLETE WORK PUBLISHED IN THE AUTHOR'S LIFETIME, and the final installment of the Arturo Bandini series. Fante is one of greatest writers of Los Angeles. Charles Bukowski once famously stated "Fante was my god". He wrote about writing and the people and places where he lived and worked, which included the Bunker Hill district of downtown Los Angeles.
