Post office : a novel by Charles Bukowski( Book )

5 editions published between 1977 and 2005 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Depuis 1977, le phénomène Bukowski a gagné les pays francophones. Une vraie épidémie. Dans le présent roman, le premier de l'auteur, le héros est un drôle de loustic, postier de son état, champion de l'absentéisme, turfiste, chômeur, une femme ou une bouteille toujours à portée de la main. Une image très réaliste (et même un peu forcée) d'une certaine catégorie d'Américains mi-marginaux, mi-prolétaires. En plus d'être un romancier au style haut en couleurs et plus qu'argotique, Bukowski est, selon Sartre et Genet, "le meilleur poète d'Amérique". Il va de soi que le succès de cet auteur ne repose pas seulement sur son goût du scandale
