Comments

This "long short story" marks an important debut, as it introduced readers to Bukowski's alter-ego and recurring character Henry Chinaski. A distinguished copy, marking Bukowski's lifelong, contentious relationship with author, collaborator, and Beat Generation personality Harold Norse. His work would appear together with Bukowski's on numerous occasions, chief among them the 1969 publication Penguin Modern Poets 13 - a high-profile appearance which gave Bukowski broader exposure both in Europe and in the U.S. Krumhansl 17; Dorbin A8.
