Women: A Novel

Charles Bukowski


How-life author and unrepentant alcoholic Henry Chinaski was once born to outlive. After many years of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his money on booze and girls, and scrimping via in flea-bitten flats, Chinaski sees his poetic megastar emerging ultimately. Now, at fifty, he's reveling in his surprising rock-star lifestyles, working 300 hangovers a 12 months, and keeping a intercourse existence that might cripple Casanova.

With all of Bukowski's trademark humor and gritty, darkish honesty, this 1978 follow-up to Post Office and Factotum is an uncompromising account of existence at the edge.
