So I agree this book isn’t funny, there are no thought through jokes, they were never meant to be written down on paper and told in a microphone for a well-dressed crowd, the world simply shoved situations in his face and he decided to laugh.

I looked around and there was a German Shepherd, full-grown, with his nose halfway up my ass. Bukowski was once an idol of mine. Oh…but hang on a minute…it’s not just mail that Hank is interested in delivering! The story starts out following a drunk scumbag who is of no benefit to society other than purchasing from liquor stores. Perhaps it was simply the pull of a life I’ll never know, of struggles I’ll never endure.

Women he meets rather seriously, two or three long and many bukowsko, but still an unconditional bukowsik for the drink. Return to Book Page. The story is about the drudgery of being a working stiff.

He tells his story after waking up from a terrible drinking spree.

I threw the thing and the lights in the church went on, inside and out. It is widely written that Bukowski too led a reckless life; his relationships with women and his world, which was full of gambling at horse races, booze, sex, homelessness, postal service, and crazy events, were full of black comedy at times and yet deeply tragic at others.


Cartero : Charles Bukowski :

I had to handle them all one of two ways. Now you know; my secret is out — I am a twisted, depraved human being who enjoys reading the thoughts of a dirty old man. But I couldn’t help thinking, god, all these mailmen bukowsko is drop in their letters and get laid. Just be careful not to touch anything, you don’t know where it’s been. I czrtero this book while substitute teaching a eo of tranquil 12th graders.

You know what else I like about Bukowski? A very good novel without dead time. She talked and talked and talked. He only finds companionship because it’s in San Francisco or LA His first book of poetry was published in ; he went on to publish more than forty-five books of poetry and prose, including PulpScreams from the Balconyand The Last Night of the Earth Poems And that, ladies and gentlemen, is my cue.

Post Office introduces Bukowski’s autobiographical alter-ego, Henry Chinaski.

Post Office

wl The closing lines of Post Office are as brilliant as the opening and one gets a sense here that this was Bukowski speaking through Hank again, during a life-affirming moment: There’s not a damn thing you can do about it, it’s the way it is. See all 4 questions about Post Office…. This book, I think, comes close to being a satirical take on nine-to-five jobs, and the pointless drudgery these jobs often entail.

Perhaps this is what happens in the mind of a drunk. I mean funny like I’m a clown, I amuse you? His story is outrageous, yet authentic. It won’t make you cry, but it will make you feel like drinking.

How in hell can they expect a man to find a mailbox in the dark? I got the same vibe from this book as I did from Rabbit, Run and Bukowki in the Rye, only this time I feel dumber for having read this crap, because in these two books I had the desire to reach into the books and smack the snot out of the protagonists.


It is all somewhat detached; his daughter is “the girl”, even though he knew “as long as I could see the sl I would be all right”, but such detachment is nece I enjoyed this more than I expected and in some way, more than I think I should! New horizons in dick literature! He loves two things more than anything, booze and women. What keeps us going is the knowledge that for all our fuck ups, it is precisely these mistakes that teach us how to live, what we love and what we loathe, our aspirations and our aversions.

And the book has a quasi-documentary feel.

One bad move and you’re finished. One of the reviews read: A row of toilets. After a while, it’s not even worth trying to get your nose back. Grigoria Pontiki I would suggest Ham on Rye too.

I recommend you try it out for yourself. There were dozens of them.

I went in through an open door. He takes it as it comes. His voice is irreverent, offensive, funny, and very refreshing.

The protagonist has no redeeming qualities and revels in his drunken squalor.

Lists with This Book. Bukowski may be merely channeling Austen for a very different time and place.
