John Lau, on John Fante:

Same here. Another thing about Fante I can't stand is his misogynism.

This is only based on ASK THE DUST, though, but I wasn't really encouraged to read more. (Didnt' know about the coming film, thanks for that!)

The pulp writer friend (or actually "friend") in ASK THE DUST: does anyone know if it's based on a living person?
