This volume assembles for the first time a staggering multiplicity of reflections and readings of John Fante's 1939 classic, Ask the Dust, a true testament to the work's present and future impact.
The contributors to this work-writers, critics, fans, scholars, screenwriters, directors, and others-analyze the provocative set of diaspora tensions informing Fante's masterpiece that distinguish it from those accounts of earlier, East Coast migrations and minglings. A must-read for aficionados of L.A. fiction and new migration literature, John Fante's 'Ask the Dust': A Joining of Voices and Views, is destined for landmark status as the first volume of Fante studies to reveal the novel's evolving intertextualities and intersectionalities.
