John Fante's gritty, tersely lyrical novel Ask the Dust has been praised by critics and writers for more than 60 years; Charles Bukowski once wrote that "Fante was my god." This previously unpublished manuscript, found by Joyce Fante five decades after its composition, was written by Fante as a condensed preview of the novel for his publisher. It is accompanied in this limited edition by a series of etchings excised in hardground, aquatint, and drypoint by John Register.
