have pulled fante off my shelves again...and again fallen for him...nothing beats a weekend in bed with arturo bandini....

what has gotten my goat beyond black sparrow shutting down and ecco press picking up the fante ... the more recent editions of ecco press' fante stuff..the covers are slick reproductions of the originals ..like they just xeroxed it...ewww...at least the first printings or so from ecco had the textured covers like the black sparrow ones did...

so anytime i am in a used bookstore...and i see a black sparrow fante i usually snatch it up....especially the fante/mencken letters and the other fante letters book...
