This Arturo is in his teenage years, a narcissistic year old, pretentiously claiming he’s a soulmate of philosophers, he doesn’t really understand, dreaming of naked ladies from his porno magazines, while incapable to approach real women and a complete pain in the ass to everyone he interacts with, annoying them with pseudo-intellectual babbling. Down the stairs I went, down the street, sometimes hot and sometimes cold, sometimes foggy and sometimes clear.
La quinta estrella es por gusto personal.
I entrust you to the benign generosity aangeles your brother, Frank Scarpi, who is, as the phrase has it, a good family man sic! A fast read, the book is somewhat shallower than the others in the series.

Camino de Los Ángeles : John Fante :
Think of what you are, my boy! His megalomania is severe to the point where it becomes absolute comedy. Where the devil are you going, Arturo? There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
Cwmino un libro que es puro nervio. The writing can be spotty and If the book were any longer, I might have given it two stars.
Fante’s Bandini has a lofty aim-to ascend from his meager existence to the exalted iohn of art-yet he is a brutal, delusional, self-aggrandizing, and ridiculous young man.
The days would not move.
