Το Ρώτα τη σκόνη κυκλοφόρησε το 1939, κατά τη διάρκεια δηλαδή της μεγάλης οικονομικής ύφεσης. Ο κεντρικός του ήρωας, Αρτούρο Μπαντίνι, alter ego του Τζον Φάντε, είναι ένας νεαρός Ιταλο-Αμερικανός από το Κολοράντο, που αγωνίζεται να τα καταφέρει ως συγγραφέας ζώντας στο Λος Άντζελες. Ο Αρτούρο Μπαντίνι, αδέκαρος, ταλαίπωρος και συμπλεγματικός, διανύει μια μάλλον ασυνήθιστη πορεία προς το δημιουργικό φως, με φόντο τις κοινωνικές και ψυχικές αντιθέσεις στην Πόλη Των Αγγέλων, όπου βασιλεύουν οι φρεναπάτες και οι παραλογισμοί ανάμεσα στον ναρκισσευόμενο πλούτο και την καταναγκαστική φτώχεια. Ο Μπαντίνι ερωτεύεται μια νεαρή Μεξικάνα σερβιτόρα, και μέσω αυτής της σχέσης αναδεικνύονται ψυχολογικές και πολιτισμικές εντάσεις οι οποίες, όντας εμπρηστικές, οδηγούν την πλοκή σε έναν, διόλου συνηθισμένο για την εποχή, παρασυρμό, γεμάτο σαρκασμό και απόγνωση. Για τούτο ο Μπαντίνι καταφέρνει ως ήρωας να παραμείνει όρθιος και να είναι σημαντικός έως σήμερα.
