Or maybe I've just read too many stori

characters Ë West of Rome ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Free download West of Rome West of Rome's two novellas My Dog Stupid and The Orgy fulfill the promise of their rousing titles The latter novella opens with virtuoso description His name was Frank Gagliano. I first read Fante some 25 years ago through of course the Bukowski connection and I was not disappointed I bought and read a half dozen Fante books Then for some odd reason I forgot about him Until recently Lately I ve been pulling some of those old Fante books off the shelf and rediscovering them and reminding myself why I liked reading him in the first place With that in mind I ordered this book West of Rome which is an odd pairing of two novellas My Dog Stupid and The Orgy The first one at close to 150 pages is nearly novel length itself while the latter at only about 50 pages is closer to a long short story And they are very dissimilar and fit oddly together Which doesn t make them bad Not at all I just wouldn t read them together at one sittingWest Of Rome contains the usual gritty passionate prose Fante is known for while also particularly in the first novella containing the usual rough comedy about difficult situations and people placed in awkward situations and how they deal with them There s also the usual explosive display of emotions In My Dog Stupid Henry Molise and family discover a 120 pound Akita lying in the yard in the rain seemingly near death They nurse it back to health place ads notifying the public of having found a lost dog in the papers and come to grips with the fact that the dog seems to have adopted them He s big strong a little mean a little bit loyal very passionate read horny gay as the ace of spades thus much of the humor and they name him Stupid by default He humps any and everything that moves especially if it s male Male dogs male humans male anything He becomes known as the community rapist He humiliates the community bullywatch dog the regal German Shepard by trying his best to rape it into submission It s hilarious and frightening at the same timeMolise meanwhile is a middle aged failed writer screenwriter and novelist who has done nothing of note in some time living in Malibu with his demanding wife and four grown kids most all of whom are deadbeats in one way or another He dreams of selling everything he has and running away to Rome to start over again He dreams too of the kids getting out of the house and letting he and his wife get on with their lives And so it comes to pass Their complete spoiled bitch daughter who s living the good life with an ex Marine beach bum while in their house gets ticked off at Molise because of the dog and leaves A son who dates only black women which frustrates his racist mother to no end ends up introducing his parents to a black girlfriend who calls them Mom and Dad to their horror Later they get a late night call telling them to come down to Venice Beach and when they arrive at their destination this woman opens the door and there they find their son beat to holy hell They take him away take him back home where the son later tells his father that the black girl is his wife and she is pregnant and she beat him up and they fought over what to do about the pregnancy he wanted to keep the child Another son has been trying to avoid the military for years trying to get out due to medical problems of one sort or another through uack doctors and Stupid inadvertently helps when the boy kicks the dog several times when the dog pins the ex Marine against a wall to hump him and the dog bites the son in the leg He goes to a doctor winds up on crutches and weeks later unable to walk gets his military walking papers and is miraculously healed The fourth child a son is a college student who has his mother write all of his English papers for him It s especially funny when she gets extremely upset at getting a C on a paper that she did her very best on However to their shock and horror he is thrown out of the college due to lack of attendance and when they confront him they discover he has been volunteering at a poor community children s disabled center But the draft board has called for him and now he is terrified Naive he is convinced his good deeds will get him off His father knows better And to top things off the man in charge of the board is someone they had a confrontation with on the beach a few months previously because Stupid tried to rape him too Needless to say Molise s son is in the army in a heartbeat His one reuest Take care of Stupid Who immediately disappears nowhere to be found The parents freak out And as the climax of the novella approaches the tension mounts and what was previously an incredibly funny work becomes less so as all of these rather serious life crises have taken their toll on the family as these lies and pretensions have been lifted and erased What starts out very funny becomes nearly sad and at times uite touching It takes a gift to be able to make that type of a transition in a short work such as this and pull it off successfully yet Fante does It s truly an excellent work The Orgy is very different It s told from the innocent eyes of a ten year old boy in Boulder Colorado the son of an extremely devout Catholic mother and a poor hard working Italian father whose best friend and workmate is an atheist much to his wife s horror and disgust One of the men an older black man who works for the boy s father dabbles in penny stocks and one day makes a small fortune He uits but in a seemingly nice gesture gives the boy s father a certificate of ownership to a small gold mine in the mountains north of them As the man wouldn t be able to mine on his own he takes his friend Frank as a partner and they start heading off to mine on the weekends with little luck The story then centers around one particular weekend when the mother forces her husband to take the son with them to the mine for the weekend and the ultimate loss of innocence that boy encounters along the way There are moments of humor but not nearly anything like in the first novella and in all candor this work while decent pales in comparison to the first and probably shouldn t have been placed alongside it It s bound to be found lacking when compared to the former It s good but merely average when compared to the excellent Stupid This book was published shortly after Fante s death in the early 1980s It s not his best work but I m certainly glad to have it in my library and I think it s definitely worth four stars Recommended for anyone who enjoys unpretentious real funny literature from the

West of Rome is made of two stories My Dog Stupid and The Orgy Both stories were published after his death so you re always rolling the dice in these situations The first story Jesus I hate to shit on one of my favorite writers My Dog Stupid reads like an episode of Roseanne It s not a story it s a sitcom with instances of Fante The story is about Fante in his later years living at home with his wife and grown up fuck head children He s lost his edge and is suffering for it One day the find big stupid dog in their yard and whacky events follow You could almost hear the studio audience laughing in back groundOK I admit to being an asshole right now There are scenes where Fante actually writes and they are good But the majority of the story lacks the heart that drove his other works Even the prose doesn t sound Fante I was speeding through the final pages first time that s ever happened to me while reading anything by him I prayed to the gods that that the next story would redeem himThankfully The Orgy was awesome The story went back to his roots and style that made his other works legendary In this story he s in his boyhood working alongside his tough ass father This is a familiar setup and I was ready to go along The story however swerved from a lighthearted story to an evil feeling with almost no warning God it was good Fante forces you to feel real pain and betrayal I wanted to kill the father at the end of the book and he s always been my favorite character Fante finally made me feel what his character experienced in his other stories about his fatherThe Orgy will remain one my all time favorite stories
