Search - List of Books by Dan Fante

Dan Fante (1944, Los Angeles, California) is an American author and playwright.

Chump Change, Mooch and Spitting Off Tall Buildings comprise a trilogy, based around Fante's hard living alter-ego Bruno Dante. Chump Change found publication in France originally, before being published in the US by Sun Dog Press. The trilogy was then published by UK publisher Canongate. Short Dog is a collection of short stories, based around Fante's life as a cab driver in LA.

Fante is the son of acclaimed novelist John Fante whose writing came back into vogue after Charles Bukowski declared him "my God", and wrote the introduction to the reprint of Fante's seminal novel about life in Los Angeles, Ask the Dust.

As well as novels and short stories, Fante is the author of two plays - "The Closer / The Boiler Room" described by the Los Angeles Times as "Ferociously Profane", and "Don Giovanni", about which AM Magazine said: "For those who want to know what is REALLY going on in post-modern American literature right now, Don Giovanni should be essential reading." Both plays are published in book form by Long Beach publisher Burning Shore Press. He is also the author of A Gin-Pissing-Raw-Meat-Dual-Carburetor-V8-Son-Of-A-Bitch From Los Angeles, a volume of poetry on Wrecking Ball Press.
