Descriere: "The Walt Whitman of Los Angeles."--Joyce Carol Oates, bestselling author"He brought everybody down to earth, even the angels."--Leonard Cohen, songwriterOne 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.

Up in the Air

Ryan Bingham's job as a Career Transition Counselor-he fires people-has kept him airborne for years. Although he has come to despise his line of work, he has come to love the culture of what he calls "Airworld," finding contentment within pressurized cabins, anonymous hotel rooms, and a wardrobe of wrinkle-free slacks. With a letter of resignation sitting on his boss's desk, and the hope of a job with a mysterious consulting firm, Ryan Bingham is agonizingly close to his ultimate goal, his Holy Grail: one million frequent flier miles. But before he achieves this long-desired freedom, conditions begin to deteriorate. With perception, wit, and wisdom, Up in the Air" "combines brilliant social observation with an acute sense of the psychic costs of our rootless existence, and confirms Walter Kirn as one of the most savvy chroniclers of American life.

INbOX 2: All Is Fair in Love & Gender War

The pursuit for love and happiness during the worst gender war I have ever seen is flat out discouraging. Loyalty and trust is so hard to come by especially in an era where social media influences a lot of the bullshit we face daily. And to be honest with you...I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF THE TOXICITY AND HATRED I see between women and men in these social media groups it's insane! But as much as I've said to hell with love... I still find myself in pursuit of it. A young couple longs to leave their past behind them and make their relationship work. But...sometimes the secrets and demons you try to bury will never rest till they return to hold you accountable. This shit will have you sitting somewhere by yourself sipping a glass of liquor...with a loaded pistol, contemplating your next move... like me. Young, pissed, dangerous, not giving a fuck and fantasizing revenge...You must pay for your sins.
