Charles Bukowski's intrepid hero / alter ego Hank Chinaski is back in this funny satire of Tinsel Town in the late 1980s.

Culled from his experience writing the screenplay for the film Barfly, Bukowski’s Hollywood rips into the shallowness of show business. The plot twists are so absurd, the characters so vapid and vain, they must be based on real life.

Bukowski’s cynical take on movie audiences (“People became so used to seeing s*** on film that they no longer realized it was s***,”) versus novel/poetry readers is insightful (“Almost anything upsets or insults a movie audience, while people who read novels and short stories love to be upset and insulted.”)

The best bits of Hollywood happen when Bukowski looks at the role of the writer in the film business.

“Who ever photographed the writer? Who applauded? … It was damn sure just as well: the writer was where he belonged: in some dark corner, watching.”

Bukowski’s portrayal of Barfly leads Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway as characters Jack Bledsoe and Francine Bower is particularly interesting, especially since he’s depicting a fresh-faced Rourke, when the rollercoaster of Rourke’s career was cresting the top its first hill.

Like the town it is named after, Bukowski's Hollywood is fun, funny, droll, and pathetic. There’s a lot of wine drinking, and the love affair between Hank and Sarah — the only two “normal” characters in the novel — is sincere and sweet.

Hollywood doesn’t pack the emotional wallop of Ham on Rye, or the laughs of Post Office, but it is still vintage Bukowski, and you can’t go wrong with that. As Hank Chianski notes:

"Maybe writing was a form of bitching. Some just bitched better than others.”

Bitch on, Bukowski, you beautiful bastard!

I bought 12 books on Bukowski. I like this one because he wrote BARFLY and FACTOTUM both made into movies. Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway in BARFLY and Matt Dillon in FACTOTUM. In his writings he uses the name Henry Chinaski. Rourke goes into a bar in Los Angeles on 3rd Street named the Kenmore Lounge. One of my favorite watering holes. And in the introduction to the movie, it shows various Hollywood Boulevard bars that no longer exist. All operating it the late 50's and 60's. The last remaining one (The Powerhouse) on Highland, is now closed and revamping into an expensive bar. Too bad too. Well, the FROLIC Bar next to the Pantages Theater is still there and shown in numerous films too. All gone, but not forgotten by us old timers. Aldo Ray's hangout too, as well as Charles Bukowski. Better discover him before it is too late.

This is alright, and if you love Bukowski then you should read it, but definitely no where near my favorite. It actually seemed to give Bukowski a clean different look about him... I felt like he became a boring old man trying to keep up with his old dirty image. Sad, but it was sad to realize while reading this. Anyway, read this before watching the movie "Barfly", and if you read this then you must watch that movie... and if you watched the movie already and haven't read this, then read this to understand how horrible the movie was to even Bukowski and why it turned out so bad. It's also great to look up the other actors and directors that at one point wanted to be a part of that movie... it would have been way better of a film and this novel would have been better too if they let another director and actors do it.

Before I discuss the book, a word about Bukowski. Bukowski has a way of making it seem that a life of sin is good for your soul and that people who live virtuous lives are dull people with dead souls. I am rather skeptical of this philosophy, but every time I read about his adventures with booze and women I tend to feel that I am missing something in life. Bukowski represents the realization of the fantasy most men have of saying f you to the system and the routine and getting away with it. This book is a memoir of the making of the movie Barfly, which he wrote the screenplay for and which is based on his early life. Bukowski has a well known contempt for Hollywood types, whom he considers phonies, hacks, hustlers, and hucksters, and his rendering of his immersion in this world is funny and memorable. And by the way, I have seen the movie: the book is better.

I saw Barfly in 1987 when I was a kid and didn't get it. After reading Hollywood almost 20 years later I now understand. It's not Bukowskis master piece but it ranks top 5 and really sheds light more on his own opinions of himself. There's way more self reflection here. He's brutally honest as always but this is way more of a sad goodbye story. It's reads more like him reminiscing of times past and therefore now lost to him. You should watch Barfly immediately after.

This one is as good as his others - just as insightful, just as poignant, and just as often hilarious.

This is only a lightly-toasted Bukowski. Quick, light, fun read. If you missed the last season of Californication you can basically find it here. If this is your first Buk novel, read on because there is so much more to be had and the bulk of his work is grimier and even more fun. I really liked his character in this book because you find you can get close to the lion. A sloppy toast to the writers of the world... Can easily be read in an afternoon.
