Owers But like she id for many of the characters in this book Lady Death came for Buk too mere months after he completed this Pulp is representative of Bukowski s best work in being raw clever original funny accessible and superbly written The edication says To bad writing which like the title is a nod to pulp fiction the irony being that many of those writers are today looked upon as masters Bukowski included This book s also an excellent addition to the noir genre sliding easily amongst books by greats like Raymond Chandler and Horace McCoy Those familiar with Bukowski s work will appreciate Pulp but if you re a fan of noir fiction there s no harm in jumping straight in with this novel This remains one of my favourite books by one of my favourite writers Pulp is a sparkling coda for a fine writer This whole thing is a bad senseless Divine Beauty dream I said 200That about sums it up except it isn t bad It s not good either I felt like Bukowski was just playing a joke on his readers the whole time like hey let me just write some outlandish fiction with an absurd nonsensical plot and someone will publish it and lots of people will read it And I m going too that because I can And he Fear and Loathing at Rolling Stone did And he makes writing seem so easy And this makes me think that I could write a book like this simple sentences clichedialogue random plot poorly eveloped characters And I know I can t yet he tells himself optimistically which is one of the reasons I liked this book he makes it seem easy I could read this cover to cover without getting bored by the prosaic writing or the trite characters Death aliens Louis Ferdinand Celine a than a few cartoon thugs And it s because Bukowski somehow makes all that crap palatable Pulp is the only one of Charles Bukowski s novels that s not written from the perspective of Bukowski s alter ego Henry Chinaski After all the agonized and hilarious autobiographical accounts of pain frustration poor health and madness of his earlier novels the great man had at last come to a subject too enormous and painful to eal with Wife by Wednesday (The Weekday Brides, directly This was Bukowski s last novel published in 1994 the same year heied of leukemia at the age of 73 As he was writing this book he knew his Dog Years days were numbered which saddens me as would loved to have seen him go out in blaze of filthy glory with something similar to Women or Factotum Just with a vulgar and laugh out nature that goes into overdrive one final swansong that says fuck you After all this was what he will always be remembered for Not for trying to be Chandler Bukowski s final novel is written as an allegory It s a parody of the hard boiledetective genre with Bukowski s heronarrator named Nicky Belane Belane spends most of the book looking for a mysterious Red Sparrow a thinly veiled reference to Dashiell Hammett s Maltese Falcon but also a shout out to his publisher Black Sparrow Press which saved him from his hated job at the Post Office and first financed his writing full time Belane s first client Lady Death hires him to find the long eceased novelist Celine one of Bukowski s role models as a writerAlthough many moments in Pulp are pretty amn funny the fact there is no Hank just left me feeling a bit empty The characters we encounter could have been taken from any of the old classic The Devils Elbow (Mrs. Bradley, detective novels so there is nothing really new here Belane s innermost thoughts recurring throughout the novel are focused on Bukowski s feelings about his own imminenteath and his struggle to make sense of the inevitable this was hard going for me and I admit to shedding a tear feeling sad about Bukowski istracted me from the plotBut fear not Second reading. ?كهة جديدة ينزاحُ عن الكتابة المشروطة لأدب التحري في هذا المَزج، أو التشويش أو الازدواج المتعمد الذي يُحدثه بوكوفسكي في آخر أعماله، يهجّر النص عن نموذجه التقليدي
