“It began as a mistake.” By middle age, Henry Chinaski has lost more than twelve years of his life to the U.S. Postal Service. In a world where his three true, bitter pleasures are women, booze, and racetrack betting, he somehow drags his hangover out of bed every dawn to lug waterlogged mailbags up mud-soaked mountains, outsmart vicious guard dogs, and pray to survive the day-to-day trials of sadistic bosses and certifiable coworkers. This classic 1971 novel—the one that catapulted its author to national fame—is the perfect introduction to the grimly hysterical world of legendary writer, poet, and Dirty Old Man Charles Bukowski and his fictional alter ego, Chinaski.

Quotes

    Baby, that’s grammar school. Any damn fool can beg up some kind of job; it takes a wise man to make it without working. Out here we call it ‘hustling.’ I’d like to be a good hustler.”

    And you felt like screaming, "Lady, how the hell do I know who you are or I am or anybody is?"

    “How about the dog?”

    “You keep the dog,” I said.

    “He’s going to miss you.”

    “I’m glad somebody is going to miss me.”

    I got up, walked to the car and I rented the first place I saw with a sign. I moved in that night.

    I had just lost three women and a dog.
