Bukowski’s final novel is a slightly surreal pastiche of the classic Mickey Spillane, Chandleresque private eye novel. Nick Belane is a lonely, middle-aged, egotistical, alcoholic private detective who is badly in need of some lucrative work, but what he gets is a series of increasingly strange assignments from a bizarre collection of clients.

Belane is asked to track down the long-dead French classical author Celine and an elusive red sparrow. He encounters aliens, heavies, and even Lady Death herself along the way. All the while Belane is convincing himself he’s still a white-hot detective and that nobody can take him for a ride—or make him feel like he’s losing his mind.

Bukowski’s deliberately overdone writing takes us on a fantastical ride through the dark corners and dodgy dealings of Belane’s film noir world with guns, broads, and heavyset thugs. Pulp is a great demonstration of Bukowski’s imaginative talents and special brand of humor and realism.
