Fiction. In this collection of 8 short fictions the author of A-GIN-PISSING-RAW-MEAT-DUEL-CARBURETOR-V8-SON-OF-A-BITCH FROM LOS ANGELES and CHUMP CHANGE gives "a running commentary on the truth behind Los Angeles's gleaming fa ade--a life of brief encounters, desperation, addiction and the chasm-sized distance between people. Dan Fante takes the traditional cab driver 'knowledge' to a deeper place fueled by raw emotion, wine-guzzling existentialism and fleetingly poetic epiphanies. Here, the City of Angels' halo has definitely slipped"--Time Out Magazine.
