By Charles Bukowski,Jorge García Berlanga

En este libro ambientado en Los Ángeles se nota l. a. continua presencia de l. a. gran urbe en toda l. a. escritura de Charles Bukowski, ciudad infernal, a pesar de estar situada en medio del paraíso californiano, sueño de todo pobre ciudadano united states, con sus naranjas, su sol y su vino, vino del que Bukowski da buena cuenta toda su vida, como el whisky, como los angeles cerveza, que habrán de ser, inevitablemente, su fuente de inspiración. Bukowski toma una actitud de ermitaño loco, de lucidez exasperada, de humorista borracho en los angeles barra de un bar solitario. Se ríe de todo, trata de ganar algo de dinero para un trago o una puta sin trabajar mucho, frecuenta otras ratas urbanas enloquecidas, odia a l. a. humanidad, se encierra en su habitación y se entretiene en contarnos las historias que le ocurren o se le ocurren.
