      Many people complain about Bukowski They think he is filled with teenage angst and was cool to read when in high school But now, NOW these complainers of Buk have grown up and are respectable adults who wear the very same clothes they wore in high school, like the same music they liked in high school, have the same jobs they had in high school, do drugs then they did in high school, drive shittier cars than they did in high school, express the same angst as in high school, and think Star Wars i [...]

      Es war ein Ort, am dem sich kein vern nftiger Mensch je aufgehalten h tte, doch ich bin kein vern nftiger Mensch, und da war ich nun Jeder zahlt drauf ist eine erstmals 1990 erschienene, kompakte Kurzgeschichtensammlung von Charles Bukowski mit 23 einzelnen Kurzgeschichten ber knapp 240 Seiten In der amerikanischen Ausgabe sind zus tzlich zu den Geschichten auch Gedichte enthalten, auf die hier allerdings verzichtet wurde Da ich mit der Dichtkunst ein wenig fremdel, f r mich noch kein sp rbarer [...]

      Bukoski is a trashy class act Trashy because he writes about defecating Classy cuz he s honest Act because he wrote a lot a bullshit for money This collection, released near the end of his life, contains the usual drinking, women, shitting, being a fucking bum We expect this kind of material However, in this collection, there are a lot of poems about writing being discovered , old age, work, fame being recognized , and horse races This is new stuff While I don t give a shit about horse races, I [...]

      No me creo capaz de criticarlo a nivel literario porque estoy muy lejos de ser una experta en literatura, pero s que este libro no es mi tipo, es el primero que leo de l y creo que es un libro que est bien escrito, la lectura me result fluida, no me dej mucho, adem s de una sucesi n de hechos triviales y algunos terribles, la rutina, la violencia, la desidia, est n en cada historia Me qued la sensaci n de que es un libro muy masculino, todos desde esta visi n y que el punto de vista femenino est [...]

      Short stories in this were mostly great.But the poetry in this felt mostly like filler Luckily there wasn t much of it, only two or three poems in between most of the stories.

      SUMATORIO DE DERROTASCharles Bukowski es un poeta duro y un novelista desagradable Si ambas cualidades se unen en la concentraci n de un relato breve, el resultado es un mazazo desolador para el lector Es el caso del volumen de narraciones Hijo de Satan s en su t tulo original Septuagenarian stew , publicado en Espa a all por 1993 y con un buen pu ado de reediciones, el mejor ejemplo de esto De toda la literatura que he le do de Charles Bukowski, esta es la colecci n de relatos m s negra, desola [...]

      Bukowski s Seventieth Birthday And MineI celebrated my 70th birthday last week and began to think of an appropriate literary commemoration I have been a reader of the underground writer Charles Bukowski 1920 1994 for some time Not my only writer nor my favorite, but someone I continue to read I thought of his book Septuagenarian Stew 1990 which Bukowski wrote upon reaching seventy He and I shared that milestone I had read the book years ago but had mostly forgotten its contents Since we were bot [...]

      Bukowski El buen Bukowski Siempre es bueno volver a Bukowski Una bocanada de aire con un ligero tufo a alcohol y a sexo, no podemos negarlo en medio del pestilente y mundano paraje que llamamos cotidianidad Su maravillosa y a veces menospreciada prosa de alcantarilla es un n ctar dulc simo para enfrentarnos al trafalgar diario el mediocre e inepto de nuestro jefe, nuestra iracunda y despreciativa esposa, los amigos castrantes y bobos A todo ello nos confronta Bukowski en sus relatos Y un excelen [...]

      Every time I read Bukowski it s like a dose of sanity and zero bullshit and some laughter about how he got so famous for being so simple It s encouraging that one page I could be astounded by the clarity and honesty and outright beauty of a small poem, and then the next page be griping about Oh cripes, Chinaski, couldn t you have put in something that wasn t about baseball, horse racing, getting drunk or that damn IBM typewriter

    11. Ricardo Sanchez

      Letras con resaca de whisky.En el mundo norteamericano pululan las historias de victoria, esta es la otra cara la de los perdedores, la decadencia y la infortunia Veinti n cuentos, donde no hay final feliz, donde una sarta de desdichados cabalgan por la vida tratando de alejarse de ella misma y de la crueldad de su existencia.La l rica de Bukowski es simple y directa, como un gancho al h gado.

      Y know, I ve reached a conclusion about Charles Bukowski he knew how to name a poetry collection in such a way that it seems like something that would be interesting and worth reading, but then he kinda screws up the actual content part and leaves the reader with a bunch of really crappy poems that completely fail to deliver on the intrigue established by the title.

    13. Chicokc

      Son cuentos de decadencia, boxeadores, escritores, deportistas que est n al final de su carrera y tratan de sacarla a flote de alguna manera u otra, pero siempre se entromete alguna droga, alguna bebida, alg n vicio se asoma levemente en la vida de los personajes y manda todo al garete.

      My unchanged for so many years love for Bukowski slowly starts to worry me and makes me think that i really have bad taste when it comes to man I guess love really is blind.

    15. Jared Busch

      This contains my favorite Bukowski poetry His early poems bore me to tears, but I think he was onto something later in life The stories are great too.

    16. Dane Cobain

      This book is a collection of Charles Bukowski s collected stories and poems, and I m assuming from both the title and the contents of the collection that it brings together the work that he wrote in his seventies Because of that, much of the work is ruminative, looking back on his earlier life and at the way that the world has changed since he was a youngster.Most authors struggle to pull off collecting both poetry and prose together in a single volume because the inherent differences between th [...]

    17. Vishal

      Septuagenarian Stew as the name suggests was written by Bukowski towards the latter stages of his life For any aspiring writer this book acts as an encouraging touchstone, that one can still produce their best work even in their seventies The voice is clear, yet still vicious, creating a vivid portrait of his life experiences Take this for example, from The Life of a Bum , describing his first meal in days The French fries were beautiful and glorious and yellow and hot, something like sunlight, [...]

      Cinco estrellas, no porque sea Charles, pero es porque estas historias est n incre bles Una m s que otra Es un poco dif cil que logren hacerme re r, pero hubo una historia que me hizo partir de la risa a pesar de que el libro no trata de eso Tambi n contiene otras que son sumamente entretenidas, abriendo el tel n con Hijo de Satan s , la cual me pareci ser la versi n malvada de El vino de la juventud de John Fante Tr eme tu amor es una historia que se me qued en la cabeza, ya que expone la reali [...]

      Buena lectura entretenida Bukowski nunca decepciona, con algunos cuentos que aumentan la tensi n y con di logos r pidos y cinematogr ficos, sin embargo no todos los cuentos son as Hay otros bastante impresionantes y con ese sello agresivo y crudo que solo Bukowski tiene Destacables El primer cuento es desgarrador y brutal El cuento del actor de cine es sorprendente y cruel.Desenga o, aburrimiento, desesperanza, crueldad Recomendable.

    20. Toni Cifuentes

      Otro de Chinaski que cae, con algunos relatos de peso destacables entre toda sus antolog as Los dos que cierran esta recopilaci n No hay trato y Lo suficientemente loco , de lo mejorcito Se me acaba Bukowski y supongo que tendr que releer sus relatos cuando no tenga m s.

    21. Rafa

      Un Bukowski ligeramente diferente, con menos alcohol, sexo y violencia, quiz s menos provocador, pero igualmente genial.

    22. Nicolás González

      Bukowski no para de asombrar en su estilo de elegir personajes decadentes de lo cotidiano para elaborar historias y momentos que se vuelven trama que atrapan la imaginaci n del lector junto con su realidad Las historias que se cuentan en Hijo de Satan s, por momento dejan un aire de nostalgia por la vida que se vive a diario y, en otros momentos, te liberan una sonrisa ridiculizada por la misma verdad, que la vida de la gente es m s com n de lo que parece incluy ndome y mucho menos fantasiosa co [...]

      Well, you did it again Good Reads remind me to never click outside of this box again in that gray area I had a nice review of one of Bukowski s farewell books of prose and poetry and I lost it Just remember this was full of stories about drinking and reflection on the human condition of mostly common people Bukowski is always humble and not afraid to take a punch, as they say Short stories centered around bums, bullying, horse racing and betting, baseball and arguing, whoring, drinking and of w [...]

      Ahora entiendo el por qu de que Bukowski fue catalogado como un escritor maldito , sobre todo teniendo en cuenta la poca en la que escribi sus obras.Es el autor m s grotesco que tuve la oportunidad de leer, en absolutamente todo.Pinta la realidad de una forma cruda e incre blemente chocante.Este libro en particular est compuesto por varios cuentos ambientados en la poca de posguerra, d nde la violencia dom stica era moneda corriente, al igual que el alcoholismo.Me hizo re r en varias oportunidad [...]

      I read this book for my Toastmasters Book Club that is meeting on Saturday If it were not for this, I do not think I would have read this, or even known about this book.I don t normally read poetry Stort stories I will read This book contains both Though they sometimes don t resemble the conventional storis or poems That s okay To grow and atrack a larger audience, writing must change and evolve and challenge us.Bukowski write about many different subject in his poems ans stories Drinking, drugs [...]
