Pulp by Charles Bukowski 


Like a majority of Bukowski's works, this book was published simultaneously in both Hardcover and Softcover first editions by Black Sparrow Press.  This is a rare true first printing of the latter trade paperback edition. 

Nice, clean, tight copy of this true 1st.   Cover shows some shelf wear; small scratch to spine and a patch of mild sticker ghosting / damage to lower rear of back cover.   

Pages are clean, bright and read like new with a slight bend to text block.

Charles Bukowski's brilliant, fantastical pastiche of a detective story. Packed with wit, invention and Bukowski's trademark lowlife adventures, it is the final novel of one of the most enjoyable and influential cult writers of the last century.

Nicky Belane, private detective and career alcoholic, is a troubled man. He is plagued not just by broads, booze, lack of cash and a raging ego, but also by the surreal jobs he's been hired to do. Not only has been hired to track down French classical author Celine - who's meant to be dead - but he's also supposed to find the elusive Red Sparrow - which may or may not be real. - Bookshop Apocalypse
