Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With Bukowski, the votes are still coming in. There seems to be no middle ground—people seem either to love him or hate him. Tales of his own life and doings are as wild and weird as the very stories he writes. In a sense, Bukowski was a legend in his time . . . a madman, a recluse, a lover . . . tender, vicious . . . never the same . . . these are exceptional stories that come pounding out of his violent and depraved life . . . horrible and holy, you cannot read them and ever come away the same again.

Synopsis:

A collection of stories from Bukowski which mirror the legendary, violent and depraved life that he describes.

About the Author

Charles Bukowski was born in Andernach, Germany in 1920 and brought to Los Angeles at age three. Using the city as a backdrop for his work, Bukowski wrote prolifically, publishing over fifty volumes of poetry and prose. He died in San Pedro, California on March 9, 1994. His books are widely translated and posthumous volumes continue to appear.

Not his best work, definetely. A whole lot of stories that go on and on...ranting. I'm a huge Bukowski fan, Seriously, but Tales of Ordinary Madness is just not a good book unless like me you have read almost (if not all) his other books and really don't mind reading crap just as long as it's by Charles Bukowski.
