Factotum: A Novel.
by Bukowski, Charles.
A Fine copy in an Acetate dust jacket. This is one of 1000 Trade copies. This is one of Charles Bukowski's best novels; in this beer-soaked, novel we follow 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.
