So far the man is three for three with all aces. This book is about Henry Molise, a professional writer who was living a comfortable life in Redondo Beach until his brother calls to tell him their elderly parents are getting a divorce. Henry’s father, Nick, is an alcoholic stone mason who never gave up John Fante is an American writer who doesn’t get his due respect.
John Fante changed the way I read books. He changed Bukowski's life and writing forever. I recall the thought that crossed my mind while reading: "I'd be curious to read what Richard Russo may have done with these characters" (big fan of Richard Russo).

Fante's book about a Catholic Italian family and their relationships with each other is a beautifully crafted book. Fante has a great ear for dialogue and his narrator's role as the dutiful son is very well executed. It reads like Bukowski only not as funny. There are some funny moments and some poignant ones as well. I could picture these people as people I have known.
The Brotherhood of the Grape. It's not every day that a writer, almost unheard of in his lifetime, emerges twenty years after his death as a voice of his generation. Henry Molise, a 50 year old, successful writer, returns to the family home to help with the latest drama; his aging parents want to divorce. Henry's tyrannical, brick laying father, Nick, though weak and alcoholic, can still strike fear into the hearts of his sons. His mother, though ill and devout to her Catholicism, still has the power to comfort and confuse her children. But then again, there aren't many writers with such irrepressible genius as John Fante.
