Description
En esta novela autobiografica de sus anos de juventud, el autor nos describe la vida de su alter ego Chinaski - saltando de un empleo a otro, todos sordidos, duros, sin sentido, emborrachandose a muerte, con la obsesion de follar, intentando materializar su vida de escritor- y nos ofrece una vision brutalmente divertida y melancolicamente horrorizada de la etica del trabajo, de como doblega el 'alma' de los hombres. Se ha dicho que Bukowski - con su prosa laconica, escueta y contundente como un uppercut - es el novelista atroz de la gran selva urbana, de los desheredados, las prostitutas, los borrachos, los desechos humanos del Sueno Americano a nivel del arroyo, y se le ha comparado con Henry Miller, Celine y Hemingway.

display_description One of Charles Bukowski's best, this beer-soaked, deliciously degenerate novel follows the wanderings of aspiring writer Henry Chinaski across World War II-era America. Deferred from military service, Chinaski travels from city to city, moving listlessly from one odd job to another, always needing money but never badly enough to keep a job. His day-to-day existence spirals into an endless litany of pathetic whores, sordid rooms, dreary embraces, and drunken brawls, as he makes his bitter, brilliant way from one drink to the next. Charles Bukowski's posthumous legend continues to grow. Factotum is a masterfully vivid evocation of slow-paced, low-life urbanity and alcoholism, and an excellent introduction to the fictional world of Charles Bukowski.
