From back cover:Ask the Dust is a virtuoso performance by an influential master of the twentieth-century American novel. It is the story of Arturo Bandini, a young writer in 1930s Los Angeles who falls hard for the elusive, mocking unstable Camilla Lopez, a Mexican waitress. Sturggling to survive, he perseveres until, at last, his first novel is published. But the bright light of success is extinguished when Camilla has a nervous breakdown and disappears...and Bandini forever rejects the writer's life he fought so hard to attain.
