  1. I used to have a poster of this hanging in my hallway It was a color reproduction of the cover A girlfriend bought it for me This was years ago I was much younger and serious I would go for long walks in the town I lived in I would try to write books I would read Bukowski and I would order books on the internet and wander around and try to write books and look at my Charles Bukowski poster and sit at my typewriter and go to work and ride my bike and not really get anything done.

  2. For newcomers to the world of Charles Bukowski, be forewarned Pulp is probably not the best place to start.I say this, not because it doesn t rank right up there with his other books, or because greener readers will fail to grasp the allusions to earlier work it contains, but rather because as his ultimate novel completed months before his death Pulp can easily be seen as Bukowski s final farewell In it, the aged author takes his readers on one last foray into familiar territories of sex, madnes [...]

  3. Pulp is the only one of Charles Bukowski s novels that s not written from the perspective of Bukowski s alter ego, Henry Chinaski After all the agonized and hilarious autobiographical accounts of pain, frustration, poor health and madness of his earlier novels, the great man had at last come to a subject too enormous and painful to deal with directly This was Bukowski s last novel, published in 1994, the same year he died of leukemia at the age of 73 As he was writing this book, he knew his days [...]

  5. Pulp is Charles Bukowski s last book So you get curious about that, a dying man s last words Is it the foxhole confession at last for a life long unapologetic vulgarian Nah True to his stolid commitment to self deprecation, satire of pretentiousness and constant drunkenness, Bukowksi, knowing he has little time left, pens his first non Henry Chinaski fiction, and dedicates it to bad writing His target here is noir fiction, ala Mickey Spillane, with Bukowski s version named Nicky Belane It s a wi [...]

  6. Nicky Belane is the best private dick in LA and that makes him a busy boy He must find the acclaimed, long presumed dead French novelist Celine for Lady Death, the ultimate femme fatale, help a mortician escape a body snatching alien called Jeannie Nitro and find the Red Sparrow, whatever that is But has Belane bitten off than he can chew this time Charles Bukowski s last book, Pulp, is a helluva way to go out and an odd one too given that his best known works Post Office, Factotum, Women and H [...]

  7. This whole thing is a bad senseless dream, I said 200.That about sums it up except it isn t bad It s not good either I felt like Bukowski was just playing a joke on his readers the whole time, like hey, let me just write some outlandish fiction with an absurd, nonsensical plot and someone will publish it and lots of people will read it And I m going to do that because I can And he did And he makes writing seem so easy And this makes me think that I could write a book like this simple sentences, [...]
