9780061131271: Factotum

Henry Chinaski, an outcast, a loner and a hopeless drunk, drifts around America from one dead-end job to another, from one woman to another and from one bottle to the next. Uncompromising, gritty, hilarious and confessional in turn, his downward spiral is peppered with black humour.

Factotum follows Charles Bukowski's bestselling Post Office, his highly autobiographical first novel. Bukowski's Beat Generation writing reflects his slum upbringing, his succession of menial jobs and his experience of low life urban America. He died in 1994 and is widely acknowledged as one of the most distinctive writers of the last fifty years.

Neeli Cherkovski was a close friend of Bukowski and is the author of Hank: The Life of Charles Bukowski (Random House, 1991)

Review:

"

1Not since George Orwell has the condition of being down-and-out been so well recorded. - New York Times

2Funny and sharp, observant, clever with details and honest. - Times Literary Supplement

3A side-splitting chronicle ... dirty realism from the godfather of lowlife literature - Uncut

4Its genius is simple and it shines a wee candle on the life of an aspiring poet and home-relief applicant - Bizarre

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. One of Charles Bukowski s best, this beer-soaked, deliciously degenerate novel follows the wanderings of aspiring writer Henry Chinaski across World War II-era America. Deferred from military service, Chinaski travels from city to city, moving listlessly from one odd job to another, always needing money but never badly enough to keep a job. His day-to-day existence spirals into an endless litany of pathetic whores, sordid rooms, dreary embraces, and drunken brawls, as he makes his bitter, brilliant way from one drink to the next.Charles Bukowski s posthumous legend continues to grow. Factotum is a masterfully vivid evocation of slow-paced, low-life urbanity and alcoholism, and an excellent introduction to the fictional world of Charles Bukowski.
