Publisher Description

Low-life writer and unrepentant alcoholic Henry Chinaski was born to survive. After decades of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his cash on booze and women, and scrimping by in flea-bitten apartments, Chinaski sees his poetic star rising at last. Now, at fifty, he is reveling in his sudden rock-star life, running three hundred hangovers a year, and maintaining a sex life that would cripple Casanova.

With all of Bukowski's trademark humor and gritty, dark honesty, this 1978 follow-up to Post Office and Factotum is an uncompromising account of life on the edge.

Fantastic novel for men.

This is written in simple terms, easy to read and has a lot of good phrases. I am sure it is not only for men, but they will really enjoy reading it.

Bukowski is a god

Great read. Writes in a way that carries you through the book like a movie.

Very unique

It's wasn't bad, I became bored of the same predictable storyline. But I could relate to this a little while in between serious relationships. Good reading for a classic.
