The closing lines of Post Office are as brilliant as the opening and one gets a sense here that this was Bukowski speaking through Hank again, during a life-affirming moment: The romantic tension that comes with meeting a strange lady in a bar will potentially crowd out any other thoughts in my mind, effectively reducing my conversational skills and potential for philosophical questing, but if she doesn’t mind me just paying for her drinks and hearing her out and not have any of the romantic stuff happen that’s fine by me.

I want him to complain in a way that makes me laugh. I can see why “critics” like this book: The mother of his possible daughter dies and he just accepts it. I became that crazy person in a coffee shop cackling over her book. The charm of this book lies in the relentless attachment bukowsmi Chinaski to the US Postal Service, as he puts in thankless hours on the trot in pursuit of a life drowned in alcohol, cigarettes, race-horses and obviously women. Now you know; my secret is out — I am a twisted, depraved human being who enjoys reading the thoughts of a dirty old man.


I want to get to know my BarBud, the good and the really bad. See all 4 questions about Post Office…. In a world where his three true, bitter pleasures are women, booze, and racetrack betting, he somehow drags his hangover out of bed every dawn to lug waterlogged mailbags up mud-soaked mountains, outsmart vicious guard dogs, and pray to survive the day-to-day trials of sadistic bosses and certifiable coworkers.

It’s nice work if you can get it, now who the hell said it? Joyce would just sit. We sat drinking in the dark, smoking cigarettes, and when we went to sleep, I didn’t put my feet on her body or she on mine like we used to. Coarse, yet deeply sensitive.
