John Fante - reborn writer because of article in N.Y. Times

Posted to WritersAndGenres




John Fante was an L.A. writer/screenwriter who died in 1960. I went to the library to get one of his books, Ask the Dust, and there were already 7 people on the waiting list to get the book. All of this just because of this article in the N.Y. Times Book Section about him last Sunday. He wrote quite a few novels. He's being rediscovered, or discovered for the first time--I'm not sure which.
