Dan Fante . . .
A GIN-PISSING-RAW-MEAT-DUAL- CARBURETOR V8-SON-OF-A-BITCH-FROM- LOS ANGELES
foreword by Joyce Fante
introduction by Ben Pleasants
In this searing collection of poetry by the author of Chump Change,
Fante tracks twenty years of excess: booze, drugs, and women. He infuses
his poetry with bawdy humor, philosophical sensibilities, and tales of
an unflinching private hell of his own making. His distinct voice reads
like short stories from his diary pages, with glimpses of his travels,
women, friends, and most memorably, the haunts of his famous father,
the author John Fante. Fante’s poems are complemented with the
unique paintings and drawings from the diary collection of Michael Napper.
