لیترالی ناامید شدم :|
یک. ترجمه قطعن نقص داشت.، مثلن فرض کنید کتاب نوشته دهه نود بعد پانوشت زده مترجم که منظور قرن نوزده میلادی است. دا فاق آخه؟
نمی‌دونم کل این که دوستش نداشتم ضعف ترجمه بود یا اینکه انتظاراتم از کتاب یه چیزی در حد عامه‌پسند بود و خود اثر هم در اون حدودا نبود.
اوایلش خوب بود ولی خب از صفحه هشتاد به بعد کم کم ریتم تکراری و غیرهیجان انگیزی پیدا میکرد انگار.

This is the first Bukowski novel I read - I chose it because the movie version was coming out, and I wanted to read the book first.

As a first Bukowski novel, its a wise choice, because its a quick read. I blew through it in 2-3 days. Its a very conflicting book, because in some regards its depressing to see how he lived, what his relationships were like, but on other levels, its inspiring, because he was so dirt poor and bounced around from job to job, but was able to support himself and his career, even if the quality of life was so low. He did what he had to do to make it work.

My one qualm with this book is that I know a lot of people who read this and think they get the basic gist of Bukowski, when that is so very much not the case. Bukowski had a very tumultuous home life (which he supposedly addresses in Ham on Rye, which I have yet to read), especially with his father, which is accountable for a lot of the reasons why he is who he is. Theres only one scene in Factotum that illustrates his fathers treatment of him and his mothers unwillingness to restrain his father - and its one of the most memorable of the book. This is also low on the social commentary factor which, believe it or not, Bukowski actually does plenty of elsewhere - its just that its generally over-shadowed by all the raunchier aspects of his work.

Absolutely pick this up, but dont let this be the only thing of his that you read.

What a piece of shit. Chuck Buck prides himself as a worthless human filled with anger and bitterness towards all his fellow men. He has no respect for women or anyone else for that matter, and drinks himself into a state of absolute despair just so he can write about his depressive life in order to persuade the rest of the public to feel better about themselves (I assume). Bile. Waste. A foul excuse for contemporary literature- its more like contemptuous literature. Im embarrassed his writing is considered @[email protected] It just made me sad. Granted, this was the first Bukowski novel Ive read. It should be a while before I pick up another one. Anyone out there disagree? - Id like to hear about it.

Βαθμολογία: 9/10

Αυτό είναι το πέμπτο βιβλίο του Τσαρλς Μπουκόφσκι που διαβάζω (Τοστ ζαμπόν, Ταχυδρομείο, Βρόμικος κόσμος και Αστυνομικό τα προηγούμενα τέσσερα), τον οποίο είναι σαν να γνωρίζω για πρώτη φορά, τόσα χρόνια που πέρασαν από την τελευταία φορά που διάβασα κάτι δικό του (Σεπτέμβριος του 2012!). Τι να πει κανείς για τον συγγραφέα και άνθρωπο Τσαρλς Μπουκόφσκι; Ήταν τιτανοτεράστιος, έζησε την (χαμό) ζωή στα άκρα, έγραψε πάρα πολλές ιστορίες για τους ανθρώπους του περιθωρίου, τους χαμάληδες, τους μπεκρήδες, τους κάθε είδους χαμένους της ζωής.

Αυτό το βιβλίο είναι, ουσιαστικά, μια καταγραφή της άστατης ζωής του Χανκ Τσινάσκι, alter ego του Τσαρλς Μπουκόφσκι. Ο Τσινάσκι που λέτε είναι ένας τύπος που τριγυρνάει από πόλη σε πόλη και ό,τι λεφτά βγάζει (δεν είναι και πολλά) τα δίνει κυρίως στο αλκοόλ και σε βρόμικο φαγητό, συνέχεια βρίσκει γκομενίτσες για πήδημα, άλλες καλοβαλμένες και άλλες για τα μπάζα, ενώ δεν μπορεί με τίποτα να κάτσει σε μια δουλειά για πάνω από λίγους μήνες. Πραγματικά, έχασα το μέτρημα με το πόσες διαφορετικές δουλειές έπιασε μέσα στις λιγότερες από διακόσιες σελίδες του βιβλίου. Και, φυσικά, όλες χαμαλοδουλειές, να σου βγαίνει συνήθως η πίστη και το λάδι για κάτι πενταροδεκάρες. Όχι, βέβαια, ότι ο Τσινάσκι χάλαγε την ζαχαρένια του. Μέσω όλων αυτών των καταγραφών, ο Μπουκόφσκι περιγράφει το περιθώριο, την αγγαρεία της δουλειάς, το μεθύσι, το άστατο σεξ, την έξη για κάθε λογής μπλέξιμο. Και αυτό που ξεχωρίζει στο βιβλίο είναι ο τρόπος του συγγραφέα να περιγράφει τα πάντα. Η γραφή είναι απλή, ρεαλιστική, χωρίς φανφάρες και καθωπρεπισμούς. Και το χιούμορ του είναι από άλλο πλανήτη, μαύρο, υποδόριο, αυτοσαρκαστικό, βρίσκει στόχο.

Είναι ένα πολύ σημαντικό, πολύ ενδιαφέρον και τρομερά καλογραμμένο βιβλίο, που αναδεικνύει μια άλλη Αμερική. Η ταμπέλα @Βρόμικος ρεαλισμός@ περιγράφει με σαφήνεια το είδος του βιβλίου. Πιο βρόμικος δεν γίνεται. Αλλά δεν χρειάζεται να πω και πολλά για τον Μπουκόφσκι: Είτε σου αρέσει είτε όχι. Προσωπικά με ξετρελαίνει. Και ευτυχώς έχω πολύ πράμα να διαβάσω ακόμα. Επίσης, πιστεύω ότι το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο είναι μια καλή αρχή για να πιάσει κανείς τον Μπουκόφσκι, να δει αν του ταιριάζει ή όχι. Αποτελεί, σίγουρα, χαρακτηριστικό δείγμα γραφής και σκέψης του μεγάλου αυτού συγγραφέα.

Υ.Γ. Στο τσακ δεν παίρνει πέμπτο αστεράκι. Δεν είναι και @Τοστ ζαμπόν@...

My first Bukowski novel... couldnt put it down. I find myself relating so much to Henry Chinaski. His manias, his phobias, his inept attempts at becoming a functioning member of society that lead him to realize he truly wasnt a man meant for this world... I find such comfort in his distressing words.

@The bus ran along a very narrow strip of cement that stood up out of the water with no guard-rail, no nothing; thats all there was to it. The bus driver leaned back and we roared along over this narrow cement strip surrounded by water and all the people in the bus, the twenty-five or forty of fifty-two people trusted him, but I never did. Sometimes it was a new driver, and I thought, how do they select these sons of bitches? Theres deep water on both sides of us and with one error of judgment hell kill us all. It was ridiculous. Suppose he had an argument with his wife that morning? Or cancer? Or visions of God? Bad teeth? Anything. He could do it. Dump us all. I knew that if I was driving that i would consider the possibility or desirability of drowning everybody. And sometimes, after just such considerations, possibility turns into reality. For each Joan of Arc there is a Hitler perched at the other end of the teeter-totter. The old story of good and evil. But none of the bus drivers ever dumped us. They were thinking instead of car payments, baseball scores, haircuts, vacations, enemas, family visits. There wasnt a real man in the whole shitload. I always got to work sick but [email protected]

A+++.

A perpetually unemployed alcoholic. Henry Chinaski drifts through the seedy city streets of lower-class LA in search of a job. Factotum takes place in 1944 and follows the life of Chinaski in his search for a job that will not separate him from his writing. He is consistently rejected by the only publishing house he respects but he is driven by the knowledge that he could do better than the authors they publish.

When they call Charles Bukowski’s Factotum a beer-soaked, deliciously degenerate novel they are not lying. Bukowski is known for the literary movement Dirty Realism; a movement that often focuses on transgressive fiction in a very raw and interesting way. The willingness to try and portray forbidden behaviours and shock readers is what makes Factotum such a great read.

Henry Chinaski is Charles Bukowski alter ego so you suspect this is a semi-autobiographical novel that tries to capture not only his uncompromising love for writing but the isolation and loneliness he must feel. The emotional honesty that pours out in this book is both heart-breakingly beautiful but also very refreshing. I’ve yet to find a novel that displays that kind of reality in the way Bukowski does.

I really want to read more books by Charles Bukowski, I’m trying to track down Ham on Rye but my library doesn’t have it and my semi book buying ban for the year really makes it difficult to obtain. I really look forward to reading it, as I was recommended both books by a reliable source. I’m sure Post Office, Hollywood or Pulp will be worth reading but since I was recommended Ham on Rye I really want that to be my next dip into Bukowski’s mind, but maybe it won’t turn out that way.

Factotum is gritty and raw; I enjoyed everything about it and it was a quick read that I really didn’t want to end. Henry Chinaski is a great character; his low-life urbanity and alcoholism makes him a great guide into the seedy underbelly. I would love to know what Charles Bukowski’s other novels are like; do any of my readers enjoy his works and could maybe recommend something similar?
