ow-life writer and unrepentant alcoholic Henry Chinaski was born to survive. After decades of slacking off at low-paying dead-end jobs, blowing his cash on booze and women, and scrimping by in flea-bitten apartments, Chinaski sees his poetic star rising at last. Now, at fifty, he is reveling in his sudden rock-star life, running three hundred hangovers a year, and maintaining a sex life that would cripple Casanova.
This novel tells the stories of Chinaski's loves, fights, misunderstanding and confrontations with numerous women he's encountered in his life.
Graphically and emotionally honest, WOMEN shows Bukowski at his autobiographically 'romantic' best.
