Bukowski est un écrivain considérable. Un homme en marche. Un homme étincelant. Avec l'énergie du désespoir, il secoue comme un vieux sac notre civilisation fin XXè siècle.

They didn’t even know what was happening because none of them looked up at any stage. The spur led them gently off in the wrong direction and with their heads down they obediently followed it. It was a bit weird to watch. I had to bite my tongue. I’ve never seen anyone doing something so totally wrong without saying something. In fact some people think I have too much to say in situations like that.
The spur was downhill of course. The hardest part was waking up Homer and Kevin. They had the decency to carry the food for us. We staggered and slid over the steep bits. And there were the kids again, all of them as asleep as Kevin and Homer, with Lee, the only one awake, sitting against a wattle tree gazing glumly at his child-care centre. 49 Chapter Five At first I was quite impressed with the baby-sitting Lee had done. He seemed to be a good supervisor. Maybe it was all that experience with his little brothers and sisters.
I accelerated hard and we thundered down the street. At the end of the block I turned left, but in the wing mirror saw his lights. He was after us all right, with a vengeance. I was surprised he wasn’t closer. He must have had some trouble taking that corner. I knew if we relied on speed and handling we had no chance. He’d have us by the time we’d gone another block. We had to outsmart him. I used every trick I knew, and made up some new ones. It was tough work, because the steering and brakes were both in poor shape.
