Post Office by: Charles Bukowski- Keith
Post Office by Charles Bukowski, is possibly one of my favorite pieces of fiction. The main character Henry Chinaski is a cynical dead beat, and excessive drinker and gambler. He tells his stories of being a substitute mail carrier for the United States Post Office. The book is filled with comical situations and a constant amount of sarcasm and wit from the dialogues of the main character. Bukowski's writing style keeps the reader constantly interested, and I never put the book down. It's a relatively easy read, and it was something that after I read it, made me enthusiastic and refreshed to start working creatively again.
