From the Publisher:

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.

Author Bio
Charles Bukowski
At the age of 3, Charles Bukowski was brought to the United States from Germany. He was reared in Los Angeles, where he lived for most of his life. Writing in an unflinching, bare-bones style, the tough, hard-drinking, hard-living Bukowski published over 45 books of poetry and prose in his lifetime but remained a literary outsider whose work was available only through small presses. His alter ego in the books, Henry Chinaski, is a tough, hard-drinking, hard-living womanizer, who hangs out with the lowlifes and criminals, with occasional flings in high society. The 1987 film BARFLY, starring Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway, was based on Bukowski's life.
