    One of the great novels of LA, a semi-autobiographical story of a struggling writer.

    Arturo Bandini arrives in Los Angeles with big dreams. But the reality he finds is a city gripped by poverty.

    When he makes a small fortune from the publication of a short story, he reinvents himself, indulging in expensive clothes, fine food and downtown strip clubs. But Bandini's delusions take a worrying turn when he is drawn into a relationship with Camilla Lopez, a beautiful but troubled young woman who will be responsible for his greatest downfall.

    Ask the Dust is an unforgettable novel about outsiders looking in on a town built on celluloid dreams.
