Product description


"An amazing, hilarious and unfalteringly entertaining account of a man trapped in a kin of Catch-23." (Bernard Levin Sunday Times)

"Takes you by the shoulders and shakes you until your teeth rattle." (The Times)

"Cunningly, relentlessly jokey and sad." (Observer)

"A laureate of American low life." (Time)


Henry Chinaski is a low-life loser with a hand-to-mouth existence. His menial Post Office day job supports a life of beer, one-night stands and race tracks. First published in 1971, this was Charles Bukowski's debut novel.
