View all 5 comments. Title says it all. There were a few surprises here too, both good and bad. The writer who has to go into the streets is a writer who does not know the streets.

He says that “Kerouac has written your other chapters”. It could be Charless was expecting something witty and intelligent, what I got was violent, crude, misogynistic and highly unpleasant, in the beginning at least.

However just as you’re tiring of the style, you get caught up in the next story. This collection of writing has a freer vibe and is more experimental. They largely consist of the usual semi-autobiographical fare from the author in the form of short stories and a few poems but they are essentially really more of a grab bag collection of odds and ends on a variety of subjects.

Escritos de un viejo indecente

At the age of three, he came with his family to the United States and grew up in Los Angeles. Books by Charles Bukowski. His following had grown by the time his collection of poetry about down-and-outers titled It Catches My Heart in Its Hands appeared in He worked a wide range of jobs to support his writing, including dishwasher, truck driver and loader, mail carrier, guard, gas station attendant, stock boy, warehouse worker, shipping clerk, post office clerk, parking lot attendant, Red Cross orderly, and elevator operator.


There are some really, really interesting and great short stories in this book and there are some really weird, messed-up ones which leave you saying or thinking WTF? Resulta que en los a 3. As he was churning these out for the Open City press, I gather Bukowski would have been writing many of the stories for his own amusement, just to see how far he could stretch a tale into the obscenely bizarre – as there are many in this collection that defy reality, but it is pertinent as it is free flowing intoxicating imagination peppered with some predicaments like the piece about Bukowski’s parents and the Frozen Man that is quite introspectively sad.

The stories either go absolutely nowhere or break off into some half-assed meta-tangent. And not even because it was nasty or creepy because let’s face it, despite panic attacks and crap, I made it through Brett Easton Ellis’ American Psycho and if I can get through that, I think an intellectual is a man who says a simple thing in a difficult way; an artist is chadles man who says a difficult thing in a simple way I’ve always loved that quote.

I know some Buk fans will disagree but hell that’s how I roll. Todos mienten Soledad Puertolas. For some, this may hold bukwoski appeal but for others, like myself, this could have been done without in many respects.

Book ratings by Goodreads. And ugliness is a fact of life, as “Notes of a Dirty Old Man” shows, page after page, but I still couldn’t stop reading, because in the end, every story leads to the same place, and indecnete is it: It’s raw stuff, with little to no care put in for structural cohesion.

In conclusion, this book would be exceptionally good if it didn’t contain those few really disturbing stories. An alcoholic, violent, reflective, melancholy, predatory, imaginative, brutal narrator.

Escritos de Un Viejo Indecente : Charles Bukowski :

Sie haben keinen Kindle? This is the first of his books that I’ve read and I catch myself thinking that I really don’t hope the rest of his book are the same.

Bukowski has morality and ethics, but they are measured within a tawdry urban world that is collapsing inside itself. This book has reconfirmed for me the fact that Bukowski is best vkejo this form of writing – short stories.

It’s been many years since I have returned to Henry Chinaski Charles Bukowski and through Notes of a Dirty Old Man, I was taken on yet another sometimes befuddling and sometimes profound reading experience. Wo ist meine Bestellung?

You can’t argue with that. Bukowski wrote the screenplay for the motion picture Barfly. The brave man doesn’t know what a lion ezcritos Christ, the last piece of ass I’ve had was in and I’ve been jacking off ever since.

Why is his blood red? And mainly because too many whores are depressed because of their jobs and so they take drugs to forget. I used to be a psychiatrist. Starting to feel tired, he heads toward a bench. I think i’ve had enough of Bukowski for a lifetime. To ask other readers questions about Escritos de un viejo indecenteplease sign up.
