  • "Henry Chinaski began working for the postal system during the Christmas rush, and for eleven years, he keeps trying to get out!"@en
  • "An autobiographical novel of Bukowski's later years."
  • "Bukowski raconte ce que fut sa vie de facteur suppléant. Il dépeint la routine, la mesquinerie, les petits chefs de l'administration des postes américaines."
  • "By middle age, Henry Chinaski has lost more than twelve years of his life to the U.S. Postal Service. In a world where his three true, bitter pleasures are women, booze, and racetrack betting, he somehow drags his hangover out of bed every morning to lug waterlogged mailbags up mud-soaked mountains, outsmart vicious guard dogs, and pray to survive the day-to-day trials of sadistic bosses and certifiable co-workers."@en
  • "Despite Henry Chinaski's lust for women, betting, and booze, he has managed to drag himself out of his hangover every day to work for the United States Postal Service for twelve years where he faces the trials and tribulations associated with being a postal carrier."
  • ""It began as a mistake." By middle age, Henry Chinaski has lost more than twelve years of his life to the U.S. Postal Service. In a world where his three true, bitter pleasures are women, booze, and racetrack betting, he somehow drags his hangover out of bed every dawn to lug waterlogged mailbags up mud-soaked mountains, outsmart vicious guard dogs, and pray to survive the day-to-day trials of sadistic bosses and certifiable coworkers. This classic 1971 novel'the one that catapulted its author to national fame'is the perfect introduction to the grimly hysterical world of legendary writer, poet, and Dirty Old Man Charles Bukowski and his fictional alter ego, Chinaski."@en
  • "Depuis 1977, le phénomène Bukowski a gagné les pays francophones. Une vraie épidémie. Dans le présent roman, le premier de l'auteur, le héros est un drôle de loustic, postier de son état, champion de l'absentéisme, turfiste, chômeur, une femme ou une bouteille toujours à portée de la main. Une image très réaliste (et même un peu forcée) d'une certaine catégorie d'Américains mi-marginaux, mi-prolétaires. En plus d'être un romancier au style haut en couleurs et plus qu'argotique, Bukowski est, selon Sartre et Genet, "le meilleur poète d'Amérique". Il va de soi que le succès de cet auteur ne repose pas seulement sur son goût du scandale."
