Luckily the students had no interest whatsoever in the book, so I had it all cartsro my evil self. Lucky Hank ends up with a wealthy nymphomaniac called Joyce, who later decides that the two should get married.

The romantic tension that comes with meeting a strange lady in a bar will potentially crowd out any other thoughts in my mind, bukoeski reducing my conversational skills and potential for philosophical questing, but if she doesn’t mind me just paying for her drinks and hearing her out and not have any of the romantic stuff happen that’s fine by me. I want to know where he works, where he sleeps, his favorite swearwords used to coat around his soft nature.

Post Office by Charles Bukowski

Let’s call it making yourself more well rounded. But it’s still just dicks, isn’t it?

Looking at the big picture, this is an insightful and thought-provoking story about a working man trying to survive the day to day. Bukowski agreed; three weeks later, he had written Post Office. When trying to learn the routes, Chinaski comes up with a variant of traditional memory techniques, bukowsku instead of visualising ordinary people and objects along the route, his is more like a series of orgies.

At times it appears like a rambling stream-of-consciousness, but I think that is a chimera and that it is actually a carefully crafted story. It’s not just bureaucracy, but full control, bordering on brainwashing: Perhaps this is what happens in the mind of a drunk.

Ever wanted to talk nonsense with a sleazy, voluptuous barfly, laugh and kiss and stroke and fuck and drink and drink and fuck and smoke and drink and sleep and drink, but caretro no such willing individual during your outings?

He is a fucked up womanizer, but I still love it. This book made me want to drink. Perhaps it was simply the pull of a life I’ll never know, of struggles I’ll never endure. This unfolds as Hank recounts his history of working at the post office. It moved way up there.

Both books have lots of women, booze, and gambling, but in Post Office there are places of real regret and sorrow, and a little joy. BarBud is here to help. His voice is irreverent, offensive, funny, and very refreshing. Screw, shit, Six-pack, and Post office.
