Okay/Occasionally good. I loved Factotum but found less to love with this. At moments the brilliance sparkled through, but ultimately there wasn't enough for this to be considered a must read, not even as a riff on a segment of society or lifestyle.

It's a quick read though and there's not as much that's easily accessible like it around today, so worth reading I guess. Keep in mind though, like some of the Beats, Bukowski is a figure who probably is given more props than he deserves, and whose books are always more expensive than they are worth. Check out Algren and some others that are better writers as well.
