Post Office

Post Office


Henry Chinaski is a low life loser with a hand-to-mouth existence. His menial Post Office day job supports a life of beer, one-night stands and racetracks. Lurid, uncompromising and hilarious, Post Office is a landmark in American literature.


  • An amazing, hilarious and unfalteringly entertaining account of a man trapped in a kin of Catch-23.
