South of No North is a collection of short stories that contains some of Bukowski’s best work. Among the stories collected in the book are “Love for $17.50,” about a man named Robert whose infatuation with a mannequin in a junk shop leads him first to buy it, then make love to it, and then eventually fall in love with “her,” much to the consternation of his real-life girlfriend; “Maja Thurup,” about a South American tribesman with an enormous penis who is brought to Los Angeles by the woman anthropologist who has “discovered” him and become his lover; and “The Devil Is Hot,” about an encounter with Old Nick at an amusement pier in Santa Monica, where Scratch himself is caged and on display, fed only peanut butter and dog food, exploited by a cynical carnie.

The collection also features two of Bukowski’s finest and most famous short stories: “All the Assholes in the World Plus Mine,” an autobiographical rumination on the treatment of his hemorrhoids, and “Confessions of a Man Insane Enough to Live with Beasts.”

The short stories collected in the volume are evocative of Bukowski at his best, when he was one of the premier short-story writers still at the top of his talent.
