“God, who would want to be such an asshole?”

So queried Modest Mouse about Mr. Bukowski, and after reading collections like this I’d wager you’d hear a lot of people saying, “I would.” Chuck is the best at what he does: making the down and out, the poor and pitiful, the lustful and sinful full of color and life. The stories are brief, but they stick with you. If you can handle the dreary apartments and bloody body parts, then go to it and make your nights a little bit more like Bukowski.

Plus, the title inspired the band of the same name. Desperation rock.
