Factotum by Charles Bukowski( Book )
10 editions published between 1980 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Synopsis: One of Charles Bukowski's best, this beer-soaked, deliciously degenerate novel follows the wanderings of aspiring writer Henry Chinaski across World War II-era America. Deferred from military service, Chinaski travels from city to city, moving listlessly from one odd job to another, always needing money but never badly enough to keep a job. His day-to-day existence spirals into an endless litany of pathetic whores, sordid rooms, dreary embraces, and drunken brawls, as he makes his bitter, brilliant way from one drink to the next. Charles Bukowski's posthumous legend continues to grow. Factotum is a masterfully vivid evocation of slow-paced, low-life urbanity and alcoholism, and an excellent introduction to the fictional world of Charles Bukowski

By middle age, Henry Chinaski has lost more than twelve years of his life to the U.S. Postal Service. In a world where his three true, bitter pleasures are women, booze, and racetrack betting, he somehow drags his hangover out of bed every morning to lug waterlogged mailbags up mud-soaked mountains, outsmart vicious guard dogs, and pray to survive the day-to-day trials of sadistic bosses and certifiable co-workers

Paris tombuctu by Sogepaq Video( Visual )
1 edition published in 1999 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This movie is more than a chain o punch lines guided by some anarchist spirit. Yes, it certainly does some heavy criticism on almost every Spanish institution, but it also criticizes the rather absurd passion with which several societies (or countries if you want) built on the whole Y2K fever. The movie takes place precisely around that date and it provides a clever, acid, and up to a certain extent prophetic portray of the whole hysteria around the Y2K (it was filmed in 1999). The rather obsessive references to the corruption phenomenon in Spain and Europe are exaggerated bt they reflect on different levels the way Spain found itself after all the corruption scandals of the last years of Felipe Gonzalez as Prime Minister (Presidente de Gobierno). Yes, the jokes, the punch lines are all there. Some of them are rather offensive or plainly unbelievable, like the scene where the rebel nun fights to "consecrate" a giant Paella, as if Catholics ever consecrate food (we can bless it, but we will hardly ever think about consecrating it, much less about "consecrating" it with holy water), but it depicts nicely the unfair position of nuns within the Church when compared to priests. The movie is fun and it provides a good insight on the many paradoxes of contemporary Spain and, for that purpose, of any contemporary society
