How-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.

With all of Bukowski's trademark humor and gritty, dark honesty, this 1978 follow-up to Post Office and Factotum is an uncompromising account of life on the edge.

Mehr über den Autor

Als Charles Bukowski am 9. März 1994 in Los Angeles starb, hinterließ er Gedichte, Short Storys, mehrere Romane, ein Drehbuch und unzählige Briefe. Er wurde 1920 im rheinland-pfälzischen Andernach als Sohn eines GI und einer Deutschen geboren. 1923 zog die Familie nach Baltimore/USA. Vom prügelnden Vater drangsaliert und von Akne gequält, flüchtete sich der Jugendliche in die Welt der Literatur. Sein Journalistik-Studium brach er ab, zog kreuz und quer durch die USA und hielt sich mit allerlei Jobs über Wasser. In der Folgezeit wurden in Literaturzeitschriften Texte und Gedichte Bukowskis publiziert, ganze Gedichtbände entstanden. Sein erster Roman "Post Office" ("Der Mann mit der Ledertasche") erschien 1970, gleichzeitig kamen in deutscher Sprache die "Aufzeichnungen eines Außenseiters" heraus.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bukowski was a real man 21. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I read this book by suggestion of my older sister. I thoroughly enjoyed it. In my opinion, Charles Bukowski is one of the few writers of his time period who was not afraid to tell it like it is. He talks about the harsh reality that we all face, without holding back. He does not strive to make the world a fantasyland in which everything is happy and wonderful. I am a woman, and I am not at all offended by this book...it is the sad truth that most men would love to live such an existence as he did. Bukowski admits to his feelings, and shares his deepest fears with the reader. No other author of the time had enough ..... to do that, and not many, even now, do. I am sorry that Charles Bukowski is dead...the day he died, we lost a great and honest man...I would have loved to have met him...

5.0 von 5 Sternen A title 7. Februar 2000
Von the lord
I could say that Bukowski (and this, quite possibly his best work,) is a misunderstood writer but that would be for the sake of those who all too quickly label him as one thing or another. Yes, his books are not pretty. They speak of sex as sex not "making love" and of booze and gambling and all the dirty things Bukowski usually wrote about. Many insist they served as fuel for his ego, as if no other writer wrote for that reason. Sure. Keep thinking that "A Tale of two Cities" or "The Great Gatsby" or "Even Cowgirls get the Blues" was written just for you. You're wrong.
A book like "Women" comes along and forces us to look closly at the disgusting little thoughs, feelings, and actions that we would rather ignore. It is a liberating thing to read such a book. Stick your head all the way in. Thank you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen enter mr. bukowski... 2. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
as the first book of charles bukowski's that i ever read, "Women" holds a special place in my heart. it is an insane story of henry chinaski and his misunderstandings and communications with women. autobiographical to an extent, this book, and all of bukowski's, are special because they are so graphically and emotionally honest. no one else paints such candid portraits of the human psyche in its most degenerate and politically incorrect situations. no other author can put so much vulgarity into a work and make it sound as natural as bukowski does. everything and every word in his novels have a place and a meaning, making his writing style so refreshingly satisfying, that you can't help but to live vicariously through his beautiful insanity. "women" introduced me to this great american poet/novelist, and it is my belief that this book definitely makes for a proper introduction to his works.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Why does it make so much sense? 23. Mai 2000
This book's narrator is gross, he's nihilistic, he's utterly simple-minded, and yet he somehow makes us wish we had the nerve to mimic him. Bukowski's work has been called "honest," but I would pay "Women" a higher compliment: it holds back just enough of the truth to make us consider it honestly. Why does this filthy tale make so much sense to us (and why is it so much fun)? Precisely because it is so simple and filthy. This book is outside of ambition. There are many of us who feel a moral responsibility to accumulate experience at the cost of comfort; but sometimes we get too lazy to hike through the rain forests or jump out of airplanes. We find a strong, comforting voice in this prose that reminds us of the adventure in the grimy, everyday details. We eat, we sleep, we have sex, we get excited and angry, we get over it, we write and we get by.

1.0 von 5 Sternen This book was Terrible 27. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I can't express my disapointment strongly enough. Ham on Rye was one of my favorites but I thought this one was filthy and boring. Don't read it unless you're into porno masquerading as literature.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read it with a beer!! 15. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This was the first Bukowski book I ever read and the first novel I read on my own (without it being assigned for a class!) in a long time. A friend of mine had a couple of Buk's books lying around and this title intrigued me. I read the first page and I was hooked. It was a very easy and enjoyable read. I was surprised at how an author could be so hilarious, vulgar, and honest at the same time. I could easily relate to many of Chinaski's gripes with women and to his many (and I mean many!) drinking bouts. Although this might not be for everyone (especially the easily offended! Bukowski gets extremely graphic at times), those with an open mind and a sense of humor should find this book delightful.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Astonishingly sober while drunken 11. August 2010
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Henri Chinaski, the alter ego of Charles Bukowski, is quoted to introduce the novel: Many a good man has been put under the bridge by a woman. So far the reader seems to be prepared to face a novel called Women, a challenge to spell all the prejudices of the chauvinism of the seventies. Bukowski and women! That decades ago sounded like a collection of attributes which could be posted on a blacklist of political correctness nowadays.

Of course there is a woven texture of hundreds of episodes, mostly playing in Los Angeles, where the author Henri Chinaski is living in a cheap flat in an impoverished neighbourhood. Although far in his fifties, mostly drunk and in a shape of low attractiveness, he is a target to all kind of women. They like to become acquainted with the enfant terrible of known writers. They do everything to come close to him, very close. And they accept his filthy appearance and do not mind sharing his bed because they want to tell that they know the famous author intimately. That does not sound pleasant at all but the reader has to ask himself whether it is the nasty character of Bukowski or a corruptness of the women involved.

There are two aspects of the book that make it worth reading again in the 21st century. One is the psychological precision with which Bukowski is describing his famous readings. He knows exactly what the crowd expects and how far he can go. They always wanted, he quotes Henri Chinaski, that I'll eat my own shit. But he knew how much he was allowed to drink and when the nonsense had to stop. Despite of all shock ritual they wanted to take home some esthetical value or political sense, because they had paid and wanted to consider life from a non affirmative point of view.
