Bukowski on Going All The Way

The first Bukowski book I ever read, and easily my favorite. It's deceptively casual in prose and plot, but it's a novel that will stay with you long after you finish the tragically hilarious final chapter.

Factotum – Charles Bukowski (1975) The ‘laureate of American lowlife’, in Factotum Bukowski presented his alter-ego Henry Chinaksi, a shambling booze-hound meandering from one disastrous menial job to the next with an increasing level of disdain as he struggles to get himself published as a writer. Set in the seamy world of the 40s LA barfly, this is a grubby classic.
