I am uite the fan of Bukowski I enjoyed Factotum Pulp and Post Office in particular and I think Ham On Rye is a work of art Perhaps the only real catch to Bukowski s work is that he is something of a one trick pony Don t get me wrong though It s still a good trickWhere Bukowski fails in his writing when he fails at all is when he allows his nihilism to devolve into creative redundancy He doesn t have very many points to make and sometimes he tends to make them in the same way Still the man is a craftsman when it comes to the rough hewn and the unflinching gaze of existentialismThis is why I was disappointed by Hot Water MusicBukowski s themes which are a lot deeper than just drunkeness sex ambivalence and poverty as some of the other reviews here seem to suggest translate remarkably well when they are drawn out novelistically by his crisp spare prose and his dry gritty dialogue In his books he takes his time teasing his message out of dark shadows and when it is exposed to the light he crushes its skull with a sledgehammerShort stories of course don t give him as much leisure for dilly dallying and as a result his work here is blunter inasumcuh as that s possible and duller and far repetitive The majority of these stories are about of course ambiently depressed alcoholics who haven t the motivation or energy to do anything but keep digging their own grave You read enough stories about soused women farting and horny men with hemorrhoids and your head starts to swim Some people might argue that these stories are meant simply to be funny and depending on your sense of humor they are but no one likes to hear the same joke told ten twelve or twenty times in a row Unless of course you really really like the jokeThe absurd pieces You Kissed Lilly Strokes to Nowhere and I Love You Albert are fun enough and although their playfulness tends to be vacuous they are still chewy enough to be enjoyable And there are really some remarkably subtle and clever stories here as well Most notable among these are Cold Night The Upward Bird Beer at the Corner Bar The Death of the Father II In and Out and Over and Head JobIn these Bukowski trades in his usual and obvious attempts at crassness and crudity for a ghostly skill the stories are delivered with his typical point blank attitude but their profundity is couched without bravado or brassiness His short stories work best when they avoid the blatant trademarks of his novels liuor soaked abuse and disdain Head Job especially is notable for being the first time that I have ever read Bukowski write something from a woman s point of view and he does it admirablyThis is a decent but repetitive collection of stories with gems interspersed throughout but the overall impression is mostly lukewarm although hardcore fans will love it

This is the first thing I read of Bukowski s and his terse style seemed to me like a breath of fresh air It s as if he copied Hemingway s style and then mimicked it to the point of caricature And yet somehow I m still saying that s a good thing I believe he took the potentiality of Hemingway s style and magnified it s unpleasantness in a manner similar to how Seth McFarlane exaggerated Matt Groening Okay maybe that analogy was pushing it but I love the way no thought or idea is too reprehensible to be included in Bukowski s conception of literature By the way besides the numerous pop culture references the thing that really got me psyched to start reading Bukowski was the excellent documentaries on him that are available on Netflix The length of his stories is interesting as well These are like vignettes and so it s best to consider the whole work together and the interrelations between vignettes
