Short Dog: Cab Driver Stories from the L.A. Streets

Short Dog: Cab Driver Stories from the L.A. Streets - Dan Fante

Short Dog: Cab Driver Stories from the L.A. Streets


"Soaked in booze and sadness, psychotic eruptions and hilarity."--Willy Vlautin

In the freewheeling, debaucherous tradition of Charles Bukowski, a taxi driver's stories from the streets of lowlife Los Angeles--with an introduction by Willy Vlautin. "Dan Fante is an authentic literary outlaw."--New York Times.

Dan Fante lived the stories he wrote. His voice has the immediacy of a stranger of the next barstool, of a friend who lives on the edge. As he writes in Short Dog (the title is street slang for a half-pint of alcohol):

I had been back working a cabbie gig as a result of my need for money. And insanity.

Hack driver is the only occupation I know about with no boss, and because I have always performed poorly at supervised employment, I returned to the taxi business. The up side, now that I was working again, was that my own boozing was under control and I was on beer only, except for my days off.

Fante was the son of famed novelist and screenwriter John Fante, but as the Los Angeles Times wrote, the younger Fante "... allows us a glimpse of the Southern California demimonde that surely escaped his father's attention."

These outsider stories are raw, vivid, and brutally honest. But even when the stories are fueled by anger and disgust, they are punctuated by unexpectedly funny and dark-humored vignettes. Short Dog is for readers ready for a cab ride on the wild side.
