During one christmas season, after hearing from a drunk that the Post Office would hire “damned near anybody to deliver the mail”, Hank applies and is successful at securing a delivery job as a temp.

Early on Chinaski realises “the streets were full of insane and dull people”; he is probably the former, but certainly never the latter. So I agree this book isn’t funny, there are no thought through jokes, they were never meant to be written down on paper and told in a microphone for a well-dressed crowd, the world simply shoved situations in his face and he decided to laugh.

When trying to learn the routes, Chinaski comes up with a variant of traditional memory techniques, but instead of visualising ordinary people and objects along the route, his is more like a series cartego orgies. I picked up the bottle of wine, had a good drag, left the letters on the robes, and walked back to the showers and toilets. The first he loses; the second he taunts regardless of consequences; the third he never gets, largely through incompetence.


Like many administratively burdened institutions, “You had to fill out more papers to get out than to get in”, but before he leaves, Chinaski has one victory: For the reader, there is a guilty sense of vicarious liberation that comes from charle in his shoes.
