A ovest di Roma by John Fante( Book )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in Italian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La vida no sonríe a Henry Molise en California, muy al oeste de la alegre Roma con que fantasea en los momentos más depresivos. Escribió de joven novelas prometedoras y luego entró con buen pie en Hollywood. Pero tiene ya cincuenta y cinco años y el negocio del cine anda mal; quiere escribir algo decente y no puede, y mantiene a una familia que sólo le da disgustos. Para colmo, se cuela en su casa un perro repelente y peligroso, al que bautizan Idiota, que acaba cambiando la vida de la familia. Mi perro Idiota complementa las otras dos novelas sobre Molise, La hermandad de la uva (1977) y Un año pésimo (inédita hasta 1985). No revuelve, como las otras, los temas de la autoridad paterna, el fracaso personal y los lazos familiares. La figura paterna es aquí el propio Molise y la historia se cierra con dos metáforas del amor. Al oeste de Roma se completa con La orgía , sobre la iniciación a la vida de un niño que es testigo de las picardías de dos albañiles
