Struggling to survive, he perseveres until, at last, his first novel is published. But the bright light of success is extinguished when Camilla has a nervous breakdown and disappears . . . and Bandini forever rejects the writer's life he fought so hard to attain.Fante, John is the author of 'Ask the Dust' with ISBN 9780876854440 and ISBN 0876854447.
