i was first introduced to this book in the bathroom of a one-night-stand's house. i tried to delay the sex part, because i was actually more interested in the book than the guy but i was eventually overtaken. nonetheless, i went and bought the book the following week.

Bukowski is in the form of his life here. Every single story hits you hard. Most of them aren't more than 5 pages long. But the impact is tremendous. Basically Bukowski has just one story. That of the down and out, hard drinking and alienated vagabond who spews out some incredible social commentary.

There are some gems like the one about guys with clean kitchens. And this wonderful line ".....doldrums of mechanical people in a mechanical act, trying to tickle their cement souls back into life wi

This was one of those rare books that made me laugh out loud, with my heart; and yet behind these funny moments a grim reality was lurking underneath.

The first time I saw Bukowski's photo, for a moment I thought he was the prolific Greek poet Yannis Ritsos and then I realised he was not. But beside the beard and the long wavy hair and their prolific writing careers they don't seem to share anything else.
Ritsos is more lyrical more benign in his writing.
Bukowski is more straightforward, with an

I simply love Bukowski. He belonged to a world I dont quite understand and he disliked people on such a high level - it confuses me. He describes a universe, where all things are wrong and where meaning of going on seems as dubious as the claim that one can come out of this life still being sane.

And yet, there are too many familiarities in what Bukowski says. I can sympathise to what he is saying or rather, what he seems to be feeling. Though the source of his impressions is different from mine,

Even though I am a big fan of Bukowski's novels I think his Strength was definitely in short stories and this collection has got everything you would come to expect from the master of low life literature, from the booze, women, cheap cigars and poetry reading to the drunken outbursts, lewd behaviour, betting on the horses and dead end jobs it's all there, and if I could choose any drinking buddy dead or alive there is no contest (I can almost picture the scene now with me probably waking up in t ...more

I'm at a total loss as to why this guy is popular amongst people my age. To be fair, this is the only book of his I've read, so maybe I'm missing something. But really, straight forward stories of life as a drunk, dirty, old man are not very interesting. They're often depressing, as would be expected, but there's no redeeming lesson or observation in most of it either. I could see the appeal to younger readers being first exposed to derision for the wealthy, skittish, management class and the fl ...more

Como antología de relatos, los hay mejores y los hay peores. Pero los buenos brillan mucho.
Franco  Santos
Muy pocos relatos me gustaron de este libro. No obstante, volveré a intentarlo con este autor.
Never really read anything like that. It`s dark (although usually, humorously) and pessimistic, with Bukowski (or his fictional alter egos) always making sure to hit rock bottom. There is no real connection between the stories (which are not all equal in quality, with some being better than others) except for the main motives- drinking, swearing, sex and the occasional law breaking or in other words, the life of a drunk and a dirty old man. This is not for the faint of heart! ...more
