1933 Was a Bad Year.
by Fante, John.

Publisher Information:
Black Sparrow Press,, Santa Rosa:: 1985..

A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine acetate dust jacket.. Th1/176 numbered copies. 1933 Was a Bad Year is a posthumously published novel by John Fante, who died in 1983. "1933" tells the story of Dominic Molise, a 17-year old Italian-American living in Colorado. While his father, an out-of-work bricklayer, seeks to alleviate the family's poverty by earning money at the pool tables, Dominic dreams of becoming a successful baseball player. "1933" is a superb slice of American life; both funny and sad. The book is full of vivid characters and memorable scenes and offers a pungent taste of the Italian-American experience as it explores such issues as the gulf between immigrant parents and their American-born children.
