Dan Fante

Dan Fante is the son of the novelist John Fante and the author of ten books, including 86’d and Chump Change. He lives in West Los Angeles.

 

"Actually, in Mooch my objective was a bit different than in Chump Change. As a writer I am trying to get more 'out of the way' of my writing. To be more direct. The styles of my father and myself are similar but, our objectives as writers are quite different."

— Dan Fante
