Book Review: Pulp

 
I’m not sure what “good old Bukowski stuff” really is, but Pulp smacks on a couple of good themes for me:  a good old fashion noir detective tale (“A dick without a gat is like a tomcat with a rubber”) and the dark undercurrents of Lady Death, Celine (the writer, not the singer) and the fate of the Red Sparrow: “Sometimes I looked at my hands and realized that I could have been a great pianist or something. But what have my hands done? Scratched my balls, written checks, tied shoes, pushed toilet levers, etc. I have wasted my hands. And my mind.” (4 of 5 Stars)
