I really enjoyed Trantino's The Angel. His own account of events leading up to his 1963 arrest for the shooting dead of two police officers.
With no punctuation at all throughout it reads at 100 miles an hour. Which, rather than detracting from the quality, adds to its effectiveness - and authenticity in the sense that Tommy Trantino was a real life hoodlum. He's lucky to be alive, after having his death sentence quashed. -- Good job it's a short chapbook because that was one I couldn't put down until I'd finished the whole thing.
Savage Kick 6 has some good stuff in it. But Dan Fante is always good.
