Dreams from Bunker Hill book. See a Problem? We’d love your help. Dreams From Bunker Hill" is the last novel by noir master John Fante. He weaves a darkly humorous story of flawed character, Arturo Bandini, a struggling writer trying to escape decaying Bunker Hill in 1934 Downtown Los Angeles. Mr. Fante's prose is light and fresh and makes the decades gone past come so alive, I could almost smell the dust and sweat. According to the book's endnote, Mr. Fante wrote this novel by dictation during his later years after he lost his sight.

The Duke was five feet two and weighed 235. the big man’s flowing coiffure. He went down like a ton of coal. The Duke leaped upon him, and managed a scissor hold around his neck. Lionheart kicked helplessly, his face turning blue. The crowd was on its feet, shrieking in rage. A woman climbed through the ropes and smacked the Duke in the face several times with her purse.

Dreams from Bunker Hill. I was a busboy at Marx's Deli. I was twenty-one years old, living in a world bounded on the west by Bunker Hill, on the east by Los Angeles Street, on the south by Pershing Square, and on the north by Civic Center. I was a busboy nonpareil, with great verve and style for the profession, and though I was dreadfully underpaid (one dollar a day plus meals) I attracted considerable attention as I whirled from table to table, balancing a tray on one hand, and eliciting smiles from my customers. I had something else beside a waiter's skill to offer my patrons, for I was also a writer.
