Description


When he finds out his father is in a coma, aspiring writer and part-time drunk Bruno Dante, fresh from the nuthouse, must head to Los Angeles for a fraught family reunion in Dan Fante's Chump Change. Now back in print to coincide with the publication of his new novel, 86'd, Chump Change follows Bruno through the tension and stress of facing his family--and the inevitable, pain-dulling drinking that lands him naked in a stolen car with an underage hooker whose pimp has stolen his wallet. Chump Change is "an honest misfit's view of America far too few know." (John Fowles, author of The French Lieutenant's Woman).
