Omtale fra Den Norske Bokdatabasen

Low-life writer and unrepentant alcoholic Henry Chinaski was born to survive. After decades of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his cash on booze and women, and scrimping by in flea-bitten apartments, Chinaski sees his poetic star rising at last. Now, at fifty, he is reveling in his sudden rock-star life, running three hundred hangovers a year, and maintaining a sex life that would cripple Casanova. With all of Bukowski's trademark humor and gritty, dark honesty, this 1978 follow-up to "Post Office" and "Factotum" is an uncompromising account of life on the edge.

Sitater fra dette verket

Love is all right for those who can handle the psychic overload. It’s like trying to carry a full garbage can on your back over a rushing river of piss.

Godt sagt! (3) Varsle Svar

The second fight was good, too. The crowd screamed and roared and swilled beer. They had temporarily escaped the factories, the warehouses, the slaughterhouses, the car washes-they'd be back in captivity the next day but now they were out-they were wild with freedom. They weren't thinking about the slavery of poverty. Or the slavery of welfare and food stamps. The rest of us would be all right until the poor learned how to make atom bombs in their basements.

I told her that Knut Hamsun had been the world's greatest writer. She looked at me, astonished that I'd heard of him, then agreed.

I took my bottle and went to my bedroom. I undressed down to my shorts and went to bed. Nothing was ever in tune. People just blindly grabbed at whatever there was: communism, health food, zen, surfing, ballet, hypnotism, group encounters, orgies, biking, herbs, Catholicism, weight-lifting, travel, withdrawal, vegetarianism, India, painting, writing, sculpting, composing, conducting, backpacking, yoga, copulating, gambling, drinking, hanging around, frozen yoghurt, Beethoven, Bach, Buddha, Christ, TM, H, carrot juice, suicide, handmade suits, jet travel, New York city, and then it at evaporated and fell apart. People had to find things to do while waiting to die. I guess it was nice to have a choice.
I took my choice. I raised the fifth of vodka and drank it straight. The Russians knew something.

People were usually much better in their letters than in reality. They were much like poets in this way.

Henry Chinaski er en fiktiv person laget av Charles Bukowski og jeg har ikke lest en eneste bok med Henry i sentrum. Enda. Charles har skrevet flere romaner om denne mannen og i følge wikipedia er det flere bøker også. Jeg vil ha en oversikt, jeg trenger en oversikt. Om dere vet om noen av disse bøkene er oversatt til norsk ikke nøl. Si fra.

Kilde til lista.

Bøker jeg ikke finner her inne:
Bok nummer en: Confessions of a Man Insane Enough to Live with Beasts (1965) - Novellesamling.

Han er også å finne i filmene
