Staff Reviews

was the last novel by Bukowski, and it is markedly different from
most of his work. This novel is underrated; it is a surreal tale, in
which a detective is investigating whetehr or not the French writer
Celine ever died. It's a silly tale with dark turns "dedicated
to bad writing", but it also is the final work of a man
grappling with his own mortality. Check it.

— Andrew H


Opening with the exotic Lady Death entering the gumshoe-writer's seedy office in pursuit of a writer named Celine, this novel demonstrates Bukowski's own brand of humour and realism, opening up a landscape of seamy Los Angeles.

About the Author

Charles Bukowski (1920-1994) was a German-born American poet, novelist, and short story writer. His writing was influenced by the social, cultural, and economic ambiance of his home city of Los Angeles. He published his first story at twenty-four and began writing poetry at thirty-five, publishing extensively in small literary magazines and small presses from the early 1940s through the early '90s. The "King of the Underground," he remained loyal to those small press editors who had first championed his work. During his life he wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories, and six novels, publishing over sixty books.
