1933 Was a Bad Year - John Fante

In Fante's 'Brotherhood of the Grape' novel I read about the middle-aged writer Dominic Molise coming back to the small town in Colorado he grew up in to see his elderly parents, but in NTTWABY we see the young teenage Dominic. Future Baseball superstar and dreamer struggling with all the hopes and fears of adolescence. At 102 pages this is more of a pamphlet than a novel but lacks none of the punch that I have read in all of Fante's other books. A great short story by one of the best. Forum Index -> Fishy Tales
