The author's dedication: "Dedicated to bad writing."
Lady Death walks into gumshoe Nick Belane's LA office and hires him to find poet and novelist Céline who had apparently eluded her and had been seen browsing in Red Kodowlsky's bookstore. Bukowski, a devotee of the writer, was elsewhere quoted as saying "first of all read Céline; the greatest writer of 2,000 years."
