Reseña del editor:

Bukowski's final novel is a slightly surreal pastiche of the classic Mickey Spillane, Chandleresque private dick novel. Nick Belane, is a lonely, middle-aged, egotistical, alcoholic private detective who is badly in need of some lucrative work, but what he gets is a series of increasingly strange assignments from a bizarre collection of clients. He is asked to track down the long-dead French classical author Celine and an elusive red sparrow. He encounters aliens, heavies and even lady Death herself along the way. All the while Belane is convincing himself that he's still a white-hot detective and that nobody can take him for a ride, or indeed make him feel he's losing his mind. Boozing heavily and trying to avoid getting beaten up in every bar along the way, he finally reaches the conclusion that he's washed up. Bukowski's deliberately overdone writing takes us on a fantastical ride through the dark corners and dodgy dealings of Belane's film-noir world with guns, broads and heavyset thugs. A great demonstration of Bukowski's imaginative talents.

Biografía del autor:

Charles Bukowski was one of America's best-known writers and one of its most influential and imitated poets. His 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.

Descripción Ebury Publishing, United Kingdom, London, 2004. Paperback. Condición: Very Good. Bukowski's final novel is a slightly surreal pastiche of the classic Mickey Spillane, Chandleresque private dick novel. Nick Belane, is a lonely, middle-aged, egotistical, alcoholic private detective who is badly in need of some lucrative work, but what he gets is a series of increasingly strange assignments from a bizarre collection of clients. He is asked to track down the long-dead French classical author Celine and an elusive red sparrow. He encounters aliens, heavies and even lady Death herself along the way.

Bukowski's deliberately overdone writing takes us on a fantastical ride through the dark corners and dodgy dealings of Belane's film-noir world with guns, broads and heavyset thugs. A great demonstration of Bukowski's imaginative talents. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.

Descripción Virgin Books, London, 2004. Hardcover. Condición: Fine. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Fine. First UK Edition. First impression of the first UK edition. ***Fine in dark indigo blue cloth-covered boards with gilt titles to spine. No inscriptions. Spine tight. Pages clean and bright. ***In a fine colour-illustrated dustwrapper that has not been price-clipped, showing the original publisher's price of £12.99. No tears. No fading. Dustwrapper crisp and bright. 200 mm x 134 mm. 186 numbered pages, plus a note about the author to the rear. ***'Pulp is a brilliant, fantastical pastiche of a hard-boiled detective story. Packed with wit, invention and Bukowski's trademark low-life adventures, it is the last novel of one of the most enjoyable and influential cult writers of the last century. ***Nicky Belane, private detective and career alcoholic, is a troubled man. Not just by the usual problems - broads, booze, lack of cash and a raging ego - but by the jobs he so desperately needs. ***They're weird. Not only has he been hired to track down French classical author Celine - who's meant to be dead - but he's also supposed to find the elusive Red Sparrow - which may or may not be real. ***And then there are the odd stiffs he encounters on the way - Jeannie Nitro the space alien; Dante and Fante, a couple of heavies trying to collect on a debt; and, of course, Lady Death herself.' (Quote from inside front of dustwrapper blurb). ***Originally published in 1994 by Black Sparrow Press in the USA, this is the first impression of the first UK edition, in its original dustwrapper - hard to find in such fine bright collectable condition. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Nº de ref. del artículo: 6804x
