Prin Hollywood, Bukowski isi povesteste experientele de scenarist din vremea cind, in anul 1987, lucra la turnarea unui film. Henry Chinaski, celebrul alter ego al lui Bukowski, revine de data aceasta cu un scenariu hollywoodian: The Dance of Jim Beam. Filmul este inspirat din experientele de scandalagiu petrecaret ale tinarului Chinaski, pe cind acesta nu era inca un scriitor cunoscut. Pe masura ce protagonistul, alaturi de iubita lui, Sarah, este prins de virtejul experientelor hollywoodiene, Bukowski agata cu ironie in firul parodic al evenimentelor si nume cunoscute din lumea culturala, transformindu‑le doar pe alocuri rezonanta: Jon‑Luc Modard, filozoful Jean‑Paul Sanrah, Frances Ford Lopalla si un anume Victor Norman ce aminteste de Norman Mailer. Prin reaparitia lui Henry Chinaski, cu pasiunile sale explozive pentru bautura, femei si curse de cai, prin ireverentiozitatea portretelor pe care le face, Hollywood marcheaza inca un moment in evolutia romanelor autobiografice ale lui Charles Bukowski

About the Author

Charles Bukowski is one of America’s best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of two. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for over fifty years. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.

Abel Debritto, a former Fulbright scholar and current Marie Curie fellow, works in the digital humanities. He is the author of Charles Bukowski, King of the Underground, and the editor of the Bukowski collections On WritingOn Cats, and On Love.
