Review by

This short story is indeed short, and so it lacks the emotional complexity and weird turns present in Bukowski's other short fiction and novels. The snappy dialogue rears its head every so often but there aren't enough words in the piece to make that count. Crumb is in his usual style here, and he's not doing anything strange or offensive enough to be interesting. If you happen to come across this little novelty, best to take the money you would spend on it and put it toward a different Bukowski offering.
