DescriptionHenry Chinaski, an outcast, a loner and a hopeless drunk, drifts around America from one dead-end job to another, from one woman to another and from one bottle to the next. Uncompromising, gritty, hilarious and confessional in turn, his downward spiral is peppered with black humour. "Factotum" follows Charles Bukowski's bestselling "Post Office", his highly autobiographical first novel. Bukowski's Beat Generation writing reflects his slum upbringing, his succession of menial jobs and his experience of low life urban America. He died in 1994 and is widely acknowledged as one of the most distinctive writers of the last fifty years. Neeli Cherkovski was a close friend of Bukowski and is the author of "Hank: The Life of Charles Bukowski" (Random House, 1991).

Reviews for Factotum
My personal favorite of Bukowski's work. The story Follows Henry Chinaski where Ham on Rye's left off who's not so angry any more but still very miserable. So many laugh out loud moments. I'm not good at reviews but i enjoyed this so much i had to write a review. A must get for first time Bukowski readers. by Kyle Lewis
