Boring damned people All over the Damned (Witch Hunt earth Propagating boring damned people What a horror show Thearth swarmed with themA funny dry cheesy The Bluebird Bet (Welcome to Tall Pines entertaining farewell from Buk with literary cameos by Chinaski Fante Celine babes booze aliens and a very unsuccessful phone sex conversation Do you like my voice Don t you find it a littleah sexyYeah a little but not too much You sound like you got a cold You got a coldNick Nick my dear boy I m too hot to have a coldWhatI said I m too hot to have a coldWell you sound like you ve got a cold Maybe you smoke too many cigarettesI only smoke one thing NickWhat s that KittyCan t you guessNahLook down at yourself NickOkWhat do you seeDrink TelephoneWhatlse NickMy shoesNick what s that big thing sticking out there as you talk to meOh that That s my gut My first Bukowski book I had no idea what was going on but I found the writing glorious Nick Belane is a private investigator who Lady Death has taken notice of Bukowski spins a metaphysical detective story that will leave you wonderingwhat is the point of anything 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 scape 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 Ham on Rye were thinly veiled autobiography while Pulp is pure fiction But it s a fantastic novel full of Bukowski s signature wit and world weariness wrapped up in a swiftly moving plot and fast talking characters re reading it well over a decade after my first time it remains outstanding That said if you ve never read Buk before I wouldn t recommend Pulp as the best place to start mostly because it feels like a summary of his career The references abound his literary alter go Henry Chinaski makes a brief cameo a hitman called Fante appears while Belane s looking for Celine John Fante and Celine were Bukowski s biggest literary influences notice the nod to pulp writer Mickey Spillane with the main character s name Nicky Belane too and the Red Sparrow could be a reference to Black Sparrow Press Bukowski s long time publisher Belane is a lot like Chinaski in that he spends a lot of time in bars having verbal fights with its barflies before starting physical ones He s a misanthropic old bastard but Buk s snappy dialogue makes him very Mlynowski Teen Thriller entertaining company while also maintaining the noir feel of the narrative It s often very funny too with Belane claiming to bexpensive Six bucks an hour and trying to catch a cheating spouse on camera by clownishly chasing them yelling the repeated refrain I m gonna nail your ass Buk came from the Hemingway school of spare writing so descriptions are minimal with a heavy Reggie emphasis on dialogue but at this point in his life he was so accomplished the reader isasily able to discern the characters from their speech alone though it s fair to say they all come off as noir caricatures Still Buk was far playful than Hemingway which is why I like him so much better than tedious old pseudo macho Papa He Switchback even toys with different genres mixing in some Vonnegutsue sci fi to spice things up and it works More often than not writers lose their Marrying Marcus (Virgin Brides, edge as they get older and their later work usually doesn t stand up to theirarlier famous novels Bukowski was the Belonging (Temptation, exception and Pulp shows an old pro as sharp as hever was at the height of his powers But like she did for many of the characters in this book Lady Death came for Buk too mere months after he completed this Pulp is representative of Bukowski s best work in being raw clever original funny accessible and superbly written The dedication says To bad writing which like the title is a nod to pulp fiction the irony being that many of those writers are today looked upon as masters Bukowski included This book s also an If Im Found (If I Run excellent addition to the noir genre slidingasily amongst books by greats like Raymond Chandler and Horace McCoy Those familiar with Bukowski s work will appreciate Pulp but if you re a fan of noir fiction there s no harm in jumping straight in with this novel This remains one of my favourite books by one of my favourite writers Pulp is a sparkling coda for a fine writer This whole thing is a bad senseless dream I said 200That about sums it up CaddyGirls except it isn t bad It s not goodither 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 تَرثُ هذه الرواية الجينات الأدبية البوكوفسكيّة مستعيرةً شكلاً جديداً في الكتابة

Ishmash of satire of pseudo xistentialist crime fiction We are all born to die We are all born to live where Bellane searches for a Red Sparrow as in Maltese Falcon and avoids Lady Death The idea as it is so many detective stories is that the detective is searching for clues to a mystery as he searches for the mystery of his own xistence This mystery idea always has had some interesting thematic potential It actually describes some of the work of Nobel Prize winning writer Patric Modiano ie Missing Person who uses this theme with serious intent and successfully Bukowski isn t disinterested in the relationship between his work as a writer and his mortality but he mostly plays the theme for laughs here through detective Belane It wasn t my day My week My month My year My life God damn it I m not dead yet just in a state of rapid decay who isn t I gave him my code name This is Mr Slow Death There are literary tributes to his favorite writers Celine and Fante and plenty of booze and broads and bad jokes natch A For newcomers to the world of Charles Bukowski be forewarned Pulp is probably not the best place to startI 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 Philosophy of Religion earlier work it contains but rather because as his ultimate novel completed months before his death Pulp canasily be seen as Bukowski s final farewell In it the aged author takes his readers on one last foray into familiar territories of sex madness and death while at the same time No Respect expanding on those themes in brilliant and often unexpected ways Drawing on science fiction and hardboiled noirlements as well the The Spirituality Revolution end result is a bizarre send up of genre fiction that is just as hilarious and insightful as anythinglse he wroteIn any case farewell hardly seems the proper way to begin one s relationship with a writer who spent the better part of five decades compiling such an impressive body of work Should readers feel obligated to start with Bukowski s vast catalogue of poems novels and short stories if they Comptia Cysa+ Cybersecurity Analyst Certification Bundle (Exam Cs0-001) expect tonjoy Pulp Certainly not But since they d be missing out on some of the best American literature ver written in bypassing these altogether astute readers would do well to check out a few of his other books as wellBut this is supposed to be a review of Pulp now isn t itThe plot follows the convoluted capers of one Nick Belane a down on his luck private ye who somehow manages to stumble upon the case of the century Well like a handful of cases Designing with Web Standards each of themually obtuse and none of them leading anywhere but Sadies Surrender (Oyster Harbor, ever deeper into a darkly comicxistential nightmare Initially retained by Lady Death a literal femme fatale to track down the presumably long dead French novelist C line the plot thickens as Belane is also hired by a husband who suspects his wife of cheating a mortician in search of a body snatching space alien and yet another client who asks him to find someone or something known only as the Red Sparrow Plot wise that s about all you really need to know about Pulp but if plot and character development are what you re after in a book then this one probably isn t for you Many times throughout his career Bukowski was uoted as saying genius might be the ability to say a profound thing in a simple way This austere philosophy of writing is perhaps most succinctly put by the pithy Structure Of The Nucleus epitaph adorning his tombstone DON T TRY Whether Bukowski was a genius himself or whether his final piece of advice should apply to all writers these are subjects for another time The point here is that like Hemingway at his best Bukowski managed to provoke a breadth and depth of intellectual andmotional responses in his work using only a sparse First Anthology

obsessions of the pulp fiction genre making fun of itself as stereotypical of the genre in the grimiest form Bukowski dedicates the story to bad writing as Bukowski did not plan his mystery novel well
