    West of Rome ePUB ✓ West ofePUB Ò west mobile, rome book, West of kindle, West of Rome MOBII first read Fante some 25 years ago through of course the Bukowski connection and I was not disappointed I bought and read a half dozen Fante books Then for some odd reason I forgot about him Until recently Lately I’ve been pulling some of those old Fante books off the shelf and rediscovering them and reminding myself why I liked reading him in the first place With that in mind I ordered this book West of Rome which is an odd pairing of two novellas “My Dog Stupid” and “The Orgy” The first one at close to 150 pages is nearly novel length itself while the latter at only about 50 pages is closer to a long short story And they are very dissimilar and fit oddly together Which doesn’t make them bad Not at all I just wouldn’t read them together at one sittingWest Of Rome contains the usual gritty passionate pro

    West of Rome ePUB ✓ West ofePUB Ò west mobile, rome book, West of kindle, 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 West of Rome is a uick and enjoyable read and one that I would highly recommend for anyone who enjoys or who i
