Santa Rosa, Ca: Black Sparrow Press, 1994. First Edition Limited. Octavo. Item #031610

202pp. signed Bukowski after the bound in original Bukowski print depicting a shooting. Limited to 300 copies, the present copy is #231. A fascinating novel of a detective on his last legs, booksellers and publishers and characters in the twisted world of Southern California's darker side. The detective (possibly based on Bukowski's very Bohemian life), is in the process of being evicted from his office, sitting at his desk, his fly undone and drinking whatever cheap wine is in front of him. His client is Lady Death who wants him to locate Celine (not believing he had died some thrity years earlier). As one reviewer said: "hard-boiled farm, snappy dialogue a little off center and oddly very honest. A fine bright copy bound in 1/4 red cloth over pictorial paper covered boards depicting a black hand gun with lettering and decorations in red, black white , pale blue andf yellow, red paper spine label lettered in black, in the original acetate dust jacket. [cf. Krumhansl, 139, d].
