    Didn't hit the table once!

    Someone recommended Bukowski to me, and this happened to be the first book I picked up. End of story. I did not put it down until 2 and half hours later when I closed the back cover. A hilarious play on the old gangster stories found in 'pulp' comics of the earlier century. The inter-woven elements of satire, supernatural and and plain cynicism, make this a great read. Looking forward to his other work.

    'A ROSE IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT'

    absolutely outstanding prose with B.'s unique sense of humour which has ripened through his life of 'ordinary madness' to something that is almost unbelievable, a bible to everyone who has doubt about the point of his life down here on earth. (if this is gonna be your your first book by B. try to begin with something else e.g. factotum, south of north, notes of a dirty old man or B.'s poetry because it's his work that makes genuine art of 'pulp')

    Crazy old bukowski

    This book (his last before his death) is so different from his others in a wonderful way.
