Surfacing from the literary underground, Bukowski's wild and
immortal stories have become cult favourites. This collection of
anecdotal short stories demonstrates Bukowski's compelling
semi-autobiographical style and his mastery of visceral language
and the depiction of seamy underworlds. Focusing on themes that
recur throughout his work, from Los Angeles and bar culture to
alcoholism, gambling, sex and violence, these pieces also introduce
unexpected elements of fantasy and surrealism.
