Read full description of the books:



Em Factótum, segundo romance de Charles Bukowski, publicado em 1975, encontramos mais uma vez Henry Chinaski, alter ego do autor, protagonista de vários dos seus livros e um dos mais célebres anti-heróis da literatura americana. Durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, o loser Henry (que reaparece mais tarde em Misto-quente) é considerado “inapto para o serviço militar” e não consegue entrar para o exército. Assim, enquanto os Estados Unidos se unem em torno da guerra e os homens alistados são vistos como heróis, Chinaski, sem emprego, sem profissão nem perspectiva, cruza o país, arranjando bicos e trampos, fazendo de tudo um pouco – daí o nome do livro –, na tentativa de subsistir com empregos que não se interponham entre ele e seu grande amor: escrever.
Em meio a tragos, perambulações por ruas marginais, tentativas de ser publicado, vivendo da mão para a boca, o autor iniciante Henry Chinaski come o pão que o diabo amassou. Tais trechos, que tratam do escritor em formação, estão entre os mais pungentes e interessantes do livro. Na sua versão do artista quando jovem, Bukowski vê tudo através da lente da desmistificação – desmistifica a imagem do artista romântico e o milagre americano – e faz desse olhar cínico a sua profissão de fé.

Read information about the author

Ebook Factótum read Online! Henry Charles Bukowski (born as Heinrich Karl Bukowski) was a German-born American poet, novelist and short story writer. His writing was influenced by the social, cultural and economic ambience of his home city of Los Angeles.It is marked by an emphasis on the ordinary lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationships with women and the drudgery of work. Bukowski wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels, eventually publishing over sixty books

Charles Bukowski was the only child of an American soldier and a German mother. At the age of three, he came with his family to the United States and grew up in Los Angeles. He attended Los Angeles City College from 1939 to 1941, then left school and moved to New York City to become a writer. His lack of publishing success at this time caused him to give up writing in 1946 and spurred a ten-year stint of heavy drinking. After he developed a bleeding ulcer, he decided to take up writing again. He worked a wide range of jobs to support his writing, including dishwasher, truck driver and loader, mail carrier, guard, gas station attendant, stock boy, warehouse worker, shipping clerk, post office clerk, parking lot attendant, Red Cross orderly, and elevator operator. He also worked in a dog biscuit factory, a slaughterhouse, a cake and cookie factory, and he hung posters in New York City subways.

Bukowski published his first story when he was twenty-four and began writing poetry at the age of thirty-five. His first book of poetry was published in 1959; he went on to publish more than forty-five books of poetry and prose, including Pulp (1994), Screams from the Balcony (1993), and The Last Night of the Earth Poems (1992).

He died of leukemia in San Pedro on March 9, 1994.
