Novel, Autobiographical novel by Charles Bukowski


"It began as a mistake." By middle age, Henry Chinaski has lost more than twelve years of his life to the U.S. Postal Service. In a world where his three true, bitter pleasures are women, booze, and racetrack betting, he somehow drags his hangover out of bed every dawn to lug waterlogged mailbags up mud-soaked mountains, outsmart vicious guard dogs, and pray to survive the day-to-day trials of sadistic bosses and certifiable coworkers. This classic 1971 novel—the one that catapulted its author to national fame—is the perfect introduction to the grimly hysterical world of legendary writer, poet, and Dirty Old Man Charles Bukowski and his fictional alter ego, Chinaski.

Klauda informiert Bukowski ist einmalig. Was in die Analen eingehen wird, ist sein Auftritt im französischen Fernsehen, live und nicht zensierbar, ausgestattet mit einer Weinflasche. Er hat gezeigt, dass die Literatur keine Angelegenheit ist von spießigen Oberlehrern.
