Reading Bukowski's Post Office
I am in the middle of another great novel by Charles Bukowski.
One funny thing in the book is that he calls the supervisor "soup".
Bukowski describes in his a terrible world, but never does a thing to
make it a better place. Henry Chinasky suffers at work again from
employers that demand too much from him, but not from sexual harassments.
I like how Charles Bukowsji writes about "men's problems" in peace,
without anybody coming up with greater trouble such as sexual harassments.
Yes, the protagonist is a womanizer, and even a rapist, but I am not
going to quit reading the book because of that. If there's something
I don't like about the book is that Mr. Chinasky goes to race tracks.
I do not make him my hero, especially because he comes hungover to
work. He still has interesting things to say about work, soups,
society, etc. and I enjoy reading it and finding some goodies worth
