      PDF John Fante ✓ West of Rome PDF Ñ West of Kindle - ✓ west download, rome mobile, West of epub, West of Rome MOBI West of Rome is excellent Fante The book consists of a novella and a story story The former is a thinly veiled fiction addressing a stray dog's impact on the narrator's life just as his kids are growing up and leaving the house The kids disappoint the narrator the narrator disappoints his wife the wife writes one of the kid's college term papers and gets pissed off when she gets low grades and the narrator threatens to move to Rome A dog shows up and starts humping every manly guy in sight It's awesome A dog humping a guy has never been so poignant Fante's willingness to bare his worst in such an articulate self loathing manner raises this piece to one of Fante's best I lov

      PDF John Fante ✓ West of Rome PDF Ñ West of Kindle - ✓ west download, rome mobile, West of epub, West of Rome MOBIThere are two novellas here the second of which The Orgy is a wonderful 5 star read Having read Wait Until Spring Bandini Fante writing about the Italian immigant experience in the US reminds me of Stuart Dybek who writes beautifully also about the Polish immigant experience They are at their best when writing autobiographically in this case a reminiscence as a 10 year old about his first generation immigrant bricklayer father in 1920s Boulder Colorado The other novella My Dog Stupid is twice as long and also somewhat autobiographical this time concerning his strained relationship with his wife and older children while he frittered around Malibu in his 50s and 60s 4 stars for me just because I think he is stronger when writing about poverty

      PDF John Fante ✓ West of Rome PDF Ñ West of Kindle - ✓ west download, rome mobile, West of epub, West of Rome MOBII've read a few novels and a story collection by John Fante now and this was the last thing I read by him well over a year ago now West of Rome consists of two novellas that he wrote later in his life the first one is called My Dog Stupid and that takes up most of this book and the second is much shorter and is titled The Orgy I looked at a few reviews on here and noticed that some people liked My Dog Stupid and some preferred The Orgy I liked both for different reasons My Dog Stupid is a story of a family becoming fractured and at the centre of the novella is the pet dog who is the focus i

      PDF John Fante ✓ West of Rome PDF Ñ West of Kindle - ✓ west download, rome mobile, West of epub, West of Rome MOBIWest of Rome is made of two stories My Dog Stupid and The Orgy Both stories were published after his death so you're always rolling the dice in these situations The first story Jesus I hate to shit on one of my favorite writers My Dog Stupid reads like an episode of Roseanne It's not a story; it's a sitcom with instances of Fante The story is about Fante in his later years living at home with his wife and grown up fuck head children He's lost his edge and is suffering for it One day the find big stupid dog in their yard and whacky events follow You could almost hear the studio audience laughing in back groundOK I admit to being an asshole right now There are scenes where Fante actually wri

      PDF John Fante ✓ West of Rome PDF Ñ West of Kindle - ✓ west download, rome mobile, West of epub, West of Rome MOBIFante's two novellas My Dog Stupid and Orgy capture the unavoidable loss of innocence which accompanies enlightenment In My Dog Stupid Fante's narrator confronts the reality of his station in life as a struggling writer who's family which he has lived for over the course of the past two decades and change is dissolving in front of his eyes While the reasoning behind this occurrence is perhaps still unbeknownst to the narrator at the end of the text Fante provides enough information for the reader to reach his or her own conclusions and hopefully apply some of the knowledge to real life In the case of Orgy the narrator's epiphany is almost Joycean in that he realizes the the harsh nature of humanity and the manner in which faith can obscure reality Ultimately Fante's style is accessible and the content is poignant W

      PDF John Fante ✓ West of Rome PDF Ñ West of Kindle - ✓ west download, rome mobile, West of epub, West of Rome MOBIthis book is actually two novellas published posthumously called My Dog Stupid and The Orgy Just HAD to read this one since Vic Chestnutt named an excellent album after it As before I love Fante's relaxed yet sharp style of writing but didn't enjoy My Dog Stupid as much as I wanted to Perhaps I just wasn't in the right mood for its pervasive sour note despite the humor? Or maybe I've just read too many stories of mid 1970s families coming apart at the seams Not sure I enjoyed The Orgy much even though it's just as tense in places Either way a fascinating writer 101
