I had to handle them all one of two ways. It won’t make you cry, but it will make you feel like drinking.

It’s nice work if you can get it, now who the hell said it? I love the stripped down, short and direct sentences that tell it like bukiwski is. Post Office, by Charles Bukowski. Both books have lots of women, booze, and gambling, but in Post Office there are places cartreo real regret and sorrow, and a little joy.

What keeps us going is the knowledge that for all our fuck ups, it is precisely these mistakes that teach us how to live, what we love and what we loathe, our aspirations and our aversions. They sat on a rock together and J. At certain places in the book, I took bukoswki simply as his own fantasy of how he saw or wanted to see himself.

How in hell can they expect a man to find a mailbox in the dark? And I can’t wait to get off work and see my baby, She said she’d leave the porch light on for me. He hasn’t pitied them, like Dickens would. I recommend you try it out for yourself.


I like a man who knows when to shut the hell up.

He might have had only half a trick, like that uncle of ours who wl to steal our noses. And it made me laugh. Perhaps then the Hegelian game of childhood has hit a snag. It’s minimalism but not in the Hemingwayesque style, i.

So I agree this book isn’t funny, there are no thought through jokes, they were never meant to be written down on paper and told in a microphone bukiwski a bukowsli crowd, the world simply shoved situations in his face and he decided to laugh. His lack of publishing success at this time caused him to give up writing in and spurred a ten-year stint of heavy drinking. The novel sheds light on Bukowski’s life during the period from and until he resigned from his job at the post office inbefore returning to his position inwhere he continued to work until Only, these stand-out moments are not strong enough to delve the reader into the inner workings of Chinaski.

Cartero : Charles Bukowski :

During one christmas season, after hearing from a drunk that dl Post Office would hire “damned near anybody to deliver the mail”, Hank applies and is successful at securing a delivery job as a temp. He will have spent 12 years living this hellish job at the post office, horse racing, alcohol and women.

Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway in the film Barfly. My BarBud should be able to tell me which one, because I forget these things. But I couldn’t help thinking, god, all these mailmen do is drop in their letters and get laid.

I wish sometimes that I could live ten minutes of my life the way Henry Chininski wakes up every morning.
