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. The only person to have made a writing career about yo-yoing in and out of employment, Bukowski accounts the conditions in having.

After decades of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his cash on booze and women, and scrimping by in flea-bitten apartments, Chinaski sees his poetic star rising at last. Now, at fifty, he is reveling in his sudden rock-star life, running three hundred hangovers a year, and maintaining a sex life that would cripple Casanova.
In this flimsy novel, Henry Chinaski is asked to write a screenplay, and thus Bukowski continues his thinly disguised autobiography Bukowski himself wrote the screenplay for the recent, self-referential Barfly. When all the Hollywood types Chinaski encounters--directors, lawyers, producers, actors, actresses--fit the same drunken-outcast-but-artistic-genius mold, Bukowski seems to have exhausted his resourcefulness.
His characters lose their individuality and the novel lacks force and perspective.
This book deteriorates into juvenile satire in which familiar, real-life figures appear with the letters of their names shifted slightly: Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.
In this hilarious roman a clef, Bukowski draws on his experiences while writing the script for the film Barfly. Henry Chinaski, the author's alter ego in the film, here returns to write--despite misgivings--a Hollywood screenplay, The Dance of Jim Beam. The film is based on Chinaski's early life as a barfly and brawler, before he became a famous author.
Factotum - Charles Bukowski
As he and his companion Sarah are caught up in the Hollywood whirlwind, Bukowski satirizes a host of well-known movie personalities. While Bukowski fans will welcome the reappearance of Chinaski, with his penchant for booze, women, and horse racing, film buffs should enjoy the novel for its delightful and irreverent portrayal of Hollywood. Highly recommended. See all Editorial Reviews.

The plot twists are so absurd, the characters so vapid and vain, they must be based on real life. Who applauded? Like the town it is named after, Bukowski's Hollywood is fun, funny, droll, and pathetic.
As Hank Chianski notes: Some just bitched better than others. Unlike Charles Bukowski's previous novels, 'Hollywood' tells the story of Henry Chinaski's life as a successful writer. He also happens to have a supportive and understanding wife as well. In this novel, you hardly see any character that is either a complete train-wreck or extremely down on their luck.
Of course, Hollywood is still a Bukowski novel, not a Cinderella story. There are a plenty of booze and ironies in this novel. They just taste sweeter than the previous ones.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I saw Barfly in when I was a kid and didn't get it.
What is Kobo Super Points?
After reading Hollywood almost 20 years later I now understand. It's not Bukowskis master piece but it ranks top 5 and really sheds light more on his own opinions of himself.
There's way more self reflection here. He's brutally honest as always but this is way more of a sad goodbye story. It's reads more like him reminiscing of times past and therefore now lost to him. You should watch Barfly immediately after. This is alright, and if you love Bukowski then you should read it, but definitely no where near my favorite.

What publisher would spend the money to publish a book of poetry knowing that the people that would actually buy it will probably just download it free and that his copies will sit in a warehouse or his garage, if he is like me? On a similar point, soon before? Krumhansl's book came out, it was released on the internet as a.
It was almost immediatly pulled for VERY good reason.
Buy for others
I'm so sick into Bukowski, that I bought a regular copy and a numbered copy Of course you're right Bill. Digital versions of these texts are very useful, but do not surfice for reading purposes, and obviously they don't have the collectable quality of the actual books.
I'm sure that almost everyone prefers to have a book for reading purposes.
Despite the various pocket technologies that have the capability to display ebooks and this type of text, I can't imagine that reading from an actual book will ever be improved upon. A good book is a perfect object.
I have to agree with all your points, Bill, hank solo and roni. This kind of thing sucks from the publisher-author viewpoint but will probably never be able to do some serious kind of damage as in the music-industry because reading longer texts or even entire novels on the computer-screen simply sucks. The book IS the perfect medium so far. On the other hand it IS great for research and study purposes. I remember the content of the russian page on at least two other pages with and without "The Captain is out to Lunch The one from Argentinia sort of sticks out and is by far the one with the most texts online I've ever seen.
People have kind of come to expect that everything they want will be freely available online. I get email all the time along the lines of, "Your database sucks! It should show the whole poem, not just the title! Bill can back me up on this, but books are laid out the way they are for a reason. The format has been perfected over centuries, and when you deviate from that basic format the text becomes more difficult to read and concentrate on.
And online, forget it. You'd have to be a masochist to read a novel online. Oh wait, that's because it sucks so bad! Never mind. I think all information should be available on line including music. Just one question to everyone who thinks books and music will cease to be published once the majority of work is online what the hell do you think of libraries? This may be our friend from Michigan who we have to ban under a different username every once in a while.
Same idiot "points," same idiot spelling, Michigan IP address, blah blah blah, yawn.
It is nice to know this web site is closely guarded. The dogs of Buk Net at the ready.
