Attractive copy of Bukowski's third and most ambitious novel. "Written in an episodic manner reminiscent of Post Office and Factotum, the book begins with a typically Bukowskian complaint: "I was 50 years old and hadn't been to bed with a woman for four years." It was the kind of honesty that people had come to expect from Henry Chinaski/Charles Bukowski" (Cherkovski, p.262). Krumhansl 63c.
