happy birthday john fante

  • About the author EB

Today would have been the 100th birthday of John Fante, author of Ask the Dust. Read about his centennial and what’s happened to his classic novel since publication here, and don’t forget that we’ll be publishing 86’d, the new novel from John’s son Dan, in the fall. BeatTheDust.com currently has a great Dan Fante retrospective up, including an interview where Dan discusses his father. Hopefully those links will fulfill all your Fante needs.
