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.

Rossamund has exchanged Winstermill and the dangerous life of a lamplighter for Brandenbrass and an even more dangerous life as factotum to the aristocratic monster-slayer, Europe. Fear and self-doubt must wait, however, as she plunges headlong into the fulgar's day-to-day life of political manoeuvring, high-society parties and well-paid monster-hunting. But whispers and rumours about her new factotum place Europe herself in danger, and now Rossamund and the Branden Rose will face the ultimate battle against their enemies, the black-hearted schemers who would destroy them both.

Rossamund Bookchild's lamplighting career has been brought to a dramatic close, and he now faces a new life as personal assistant to Europe, a powerful monster-hunter.

But now that he knows the truth, how can Rossamund work alongside a professional monster-hater? Only his loyalty to Europe keeps him by her side as they embark on a dangerous monster-hunting tour that must in tragedy...

From the time it was written, the aria "Largo al factotum" from Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia has been performed and ornamented in many different ways. The present study is an inventory and analysis of ornaments sung in 33 recordings from 1900 to 2011 and the major differences that they exhibit one from another. The singers in this study are baritones with international careers, who have performed the role of Figaro either at the Metropolitan Opera (New York) or at La Scala (Milan). The study identifies and tracks some of the changes in the ornamentation of the aria by noting common traits and new approaches across the one hundred eleven years of practice illustrated by the recordings.

An unbelievable story of success and accomplishment against all odds, rags-to-riches and so much more. These amazing memoirs of Mark R. Hafkey will inspire and awe. As a child orphaned by the tragic death of his father, Mark always craved unity, cohesion, safety, security and unconditional love that only a family can provide. A naïve, unsophisticated young woman who pursued her dreams, her rebellion fueled by her strict, religious family was not the typical nurturing mother. Although she loved her sons very much, her youth, un-worldliness and yearning for personal recognition guided her actions. Typically, drugs cause a downward spiraling of the user, but not so for Honey. Her drug selling, prostitution and questionable lifestyle were just a means to an end and a method for reaching that unseen brass ring. Abandoning her sons to pursue the life she yearned, she unwittingly and unintentionally, created a son who possessed the same inner drive, but whose life adventures would lead him to very different trials, tribulations, ups, downs and ultimate successes. Her matter-of-fact approach to live transferred to her son. Every waking moment of Mark's life became a lesson which he used, galvanizing himself with steely determination to overcome each obstacle. Follow Mark through childhood, life in a cult, kidnappings, street policing and altitude with attitude. It's definitely a fun ride!
