Hot Water Music is a collection of stories that features tales of life in cheap hotels, struggling underground writers, and desperation. Bukowksi deals in broken men, not the least of whom is his alter-ego, Henry Chinaski. Some stories included here are “Less Delicate Than the Locust,” “Scream When You Burn,” “A Couple of Gigolos,” “The Great Poet,” and “You Kissed Lilly.”

Originally published in 1983, this is an important collection that establishes Bukowski’s minimalist style and his thematic oeuvre.

Quotes & Awards

  • “There is certainly a raw power in these stories.”

    Los Angeles Times Book Review

  • “In his best work, Bukowski comes close to making us comprehend, if not the sense of it all, then at least its intensity. He cannot forget, and he will not let us forget, that every morning at 3 a.m. broken people lie ‘in their beds, trying in vain to sleep, and deserving that rest, if they could find it.’”

    Globe and Mail
