Pulp
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

Description


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 is one of America's best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of two. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for over fifty years. He died in San Pedro, California on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.
