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.

So here we go This book made me want to drink. I mean a lot, a lot. And it made me laugh. Now you know; my secret is out — I am a twisted, depraved human being who enjoys reading the thoughts of a dirty old man.
Let’s call it making yourself more well rounded. This is his world folks, enter with caution! Just be careful not to touch anything, you don’t know where it’s been. I felt like Bukowski was telling me a story. I could hear his gravelly voice and smell the whiskey on his breath. If the everyman is a pervy drunk.
You know what else I like about Bukowski? I like a man who knows when to shut the hell up.

I don’t mind working, ’cause I used to be jerking off most of my time in bars, I’ve been a cabbie and a stock clerk and a soda-fountain jock-jerk And a manic mechanic on cars. It’s nice work if you can get it, now who the hell sa is it just me, or does reading bukowski make you want to listen to tom waits, too?

Bukowski was once an idol of mine. I’ve since grown up.
He took himself too bukkowski while pretending that he didn’t. And he was practically talentless. He had spunk and a surprising “surprising” because of all ubkowski booze work ethic but an ultimately boring sense of humor.
His words are like what Hemingway would have thrown away. Bukowski was America’s greatest one-trick pony. Or perhaps that’s giving him too much credit. He might have had only half a trick, like that uncle of ours who used Bukowski was once an idol of mine. He might have had only half a trick, like that uncle of ours who used to steal our noses. After a while, it’s not even worth trying to get your nose back. You just want your uncle to pass out so he’ll stop bothering you. View all 37 comments.

Our parents get together mistake 1we’re conceived mistake 2, sometimes also mistake 1we’re not aborted mistake 3and then the rest of our lives — an unending succession of mistakes. Luckily for us, it DOES end eventually, but in between it’s nothing but trial and error.
What keeps us going carteor 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.
Bukowski knew this, which is why he wrote the sort of stuff he did, and why it resonates so well with so many. Admittedly, he wasn’t the most sophisticated of writers. He does a lot more telling than showing, although the tales he tells show us quite a bit about the absurdities of modern life, the insanities we’re so often driven to, and all the myriad ways in which we choose to cope. Post Office is no exception. I would read it if I were you, but then again, if I were you I’d probably kill myself.
Or maybe I’d just grab a bottle bukoswki try to live for tonight instead. View all 18 comments.
Jul 29, BlackOxford rated it really liked it Shelves: So in that spirit: The first he loses; the second he taunts regardless of consequences; the third he never gets, largely through incompetence. Chinaski has clear priorities. Ambition, catero, wealth are for mugs.
Chinaski also has a decided philosophical bent: Courage comes from the belly—all else is desperation. Ubkowski takes it as it comes. Lunch, and back in on schedule! Life, at last, was bearable.

Bukowski may be merely channeling Austen for a very different time and place.

There were dozens of them. They just kept moving closer and closer. Joyce would just sit.
