    Pulp novel Charles BukowskiPulp is the last completed novel by Los Angeles poet and writer Charles Bukowski It was published in 1994 shortly before Bukowski's death Pulp is a pulp fiction novel which acts also as a meta pulp Pulp comments on the obsessions of the pulp fiction genre making fun of itself as stereotypical of the genre in the grimiest form Bukowski dedicates the story to bad writing as Bukowski did not plan his mystery novel well and freuently wrote Nicky Belane into holes from which he could not escape Bukowski wrote some of his most violent cynical sarcastic and shocking work during the final months of his life Many critics have agreed this novel exemplifies Bukowski showing an acceptance of his own pending mortalityتاریخ نخستین خوانش روز بیستم ماه ژوئن سال 2010 میلادیعنوان عامه‌ پسند؛ نویسنده چارلز بوکوفسکی؛ مترجم پیمان خاکسار؛ مشخصات نشر تهران، نشر چشمه، 1388، در 198 ص، شابک 9789643625726؛ چاپ سوم 1389؛ چاپ پنجم 1390؛ چاپ ششم 1393؛ موضوع داستانهای نویسندگان امریکایی سده 20 معنوان عامه‌ پسند؛ نویسنده چارلز بوکوفسکی؛ مترجم محمدصادق سبط الشیخ؛ مشخصات نشر تهران، چلچله، 1394، در 332 ص،؛ شابک 9789646553835؛ کتابنامه داردراوی داستان، نیکی بلان کارآگاه خصوصی ست؛ که سعی می‌کند در مورد نویسنده کلاسیک فرانسوی سلین و گنجشک قرمز تحقیق کند کنکاش نیکی بلان، او را گام به گام در زندگی سطح پایین شهری فرومی‌برد؛ چیزی که در دیگر نوشته‌ های بوکوفسکی نیز موضوعی طبیعی است کتاب با دارا بودن رگه‌ هایی از نوشته‌ های علمی تخیلی، و فوق طبیعی، توسط خود بوکوفسکی به «بد نوشتن» تقدیم شده‌ است ا شربیانی

    For newcomers to the world of Charles Bukowski be forewarned Pulp is probably not the best place to startI say this not because it doesn’t rank right up there with his other books or because greener readers will fail to grasp the allusions to earlier work it contains but rather because as his ultimate novel completed months before his death Pulp can easily be seen as Bukowski’s final farewell In it the aged author takes his readers on one last foray into familiar territories of sex madness and death while at the same time expanding on those themes in brilliant and often unexpected ways Drawing on science fiction and hardboiled noir elements as well the end result is a bizarre send up of genre fiction that is just as hilarious and insightful as anything else he wroteIn any case “farewell” hardly seems the proper way to begin one’s relationship with a writer who spent the better part of five decades compiling such an impressive body of work Should readers feel obligated to start with Bukowski’s vast catalogue of poems novels and short stories if they expect to enjoy Pulp? Certainly not But since they’d be missing out on some of the best American literature ever written in bypassing these altogether astute readers would do well to check out a few of his other books as wellBut this is supposed to be a review of Pulp now isn’t it?The plot follows the convoluted capers of one Nick Belane a down on his luck private eye who somehow manages to stumble upon the case of the century Well like a handful of cases – each of them eually obtuse and none of them leading anywhere but ever deeper into a darkly comic existential nightmare Initially retained by Lady Death a literal femme fatale to track down the presumably long dead French novelist Céline the plot thickens as Belane is also hired by a husband who suspects his wife of cheating a mortician in search of a body snatching space alien and yet another client who asks him to find someone or something known only as the “Red Sparrow”Plot wise that’s about all you really need to know about Pulp but if plot and character development are what you’re after in a book then this one probably isn’t for you Many times throughout his career Bukowski was uoted as saying “genius might be the ability to say a profound thing in a simple way” This austere philosophy of writing is perhaps most succinctly put by the pithy epitaph adorning his tombstone DON’T TRY Whether Bukowski was a genius himself or whether his final piece of advice should apply to all writers – these are subjects for another time The point here is that like Hemingway at his best Bukowski managed to provoke a breadth and depth of intellectual and emotional responses in his work using only a sparse economy of words and dialogue and Pulp is no exceptionA large portion of Bukowski’s writing had a satirical bent to it and though it would be a simplification to label him a satirist outright there can be no denying that much of his fiction contains a strong element of lampoon Whether denigrating himself or poking fun at such sacrosanct notions as god country and anything else associated with the American herd mentality one cannot read Bukowski and come away without noticing the inordinate amount of tongue in his cheek In Pulp Bukowski sets his sights on writing itself – specifically the contrived conventions of genre writingIt is no coincidence after all that Pulp is called what it’s called the title being a reference to tawdry dime novels of times past or that the book itself is dedicated “to bad writing” Still if there is any writer capable of taking something bad and making it so much worse that it ends up being good it is Bukowski Consider the following excerpt from chapter nineI had to straighten out the Celine matter and find the Red Sparrow and here was this flabby ball of flesh worried because his wife was screwing somebodyThen he spoke “I just want to find out I just want to find out for myself”“I don’t come cheap”“How much”?“6 bucks an hour”“That doesn’t seem like much money”“Does to me You got a photo of your wife?”He dug into his wallet come up with one handed it to meI looked at it“Oh my Does she really look like this?”“Yes”“I’m getting a hard on just looking at this”“Hey don’t be a wise guy”“Oh sorry But I’ll have to keep the photo I’ll return it when I’m finished”I put it in my wallet“Is she still living with you?”“Yes”“And you go to work?”“Yes”“And then sometimes she”“Yes”“And what makes you think she”“Tips phone calls voices in my head her changed behavior any number of things”I pushed a notepad toward him“Put down your address home and business phone home and business I’ll take it from here I’ll nail her ass to the wall I’ll uncover the whole thing”“What?”“I am accepting this case Mr Bass Upon its fruition you will be informed”“‘Fruition’?” he asked “Listen are you alright?”“I’m straight How about you?”“Oh yeah I’m alright”“Then don’t worry I’m your man I’ll nail her ass”Bass rose slowly from his chair He moved toward the door then turned“Barton recommended you”“There you go then Good afternoon Mr Bass”The door closed and he was gone Good old BartonI took her photo out of my wallet and sat there looking at itYou bitch I thought you bitchI got up and locked the door then took the phone off the hook I sat behind my desk looking at the photoYou bitch I thought I’ll nail your ass Against the wall No mercy for you I’ll catch you in the act I’ll catch you at it You whore you bitch you whoreI began breathing heavily I unzipped Then the earthuake hit I dropped the photo and ducked under the desk It was a good one Around a 6 Felt like it lasted a couple of minutes Then it stopped I crawled out from under the desk still unzipped I found the photo again put it back in my wallet zipped up Sex was a trap a snare It was for animals I had too much sense for that kind of crap I put the phone back on the hook opened the door stepped out locked it and walked down to the elevator I had work to do I was the best dick in LA and Hollywood I hit the button and waited for the fucking elevator to come on upA bit juvenile for the writing of a 73 year old man? Perhaps But what Bukowski is up to in this book is not very different from what he’s been up to in all the rest – painting an unapologetic portrait of people as they are often at their worst their absurd and futile lives rendered in full view with frank realism and usually great humor Bukowski laughs at the ineffectual masturbating detective because he really does deserve to be laughed at And yet Belane is allowed to continue with some semblance of decency because if there’s one thing we could all use of it’s probably that Pulp is a book that will make fans of sci fi and detective genre writing wonder what might have been had Bukowski decided to produce in those veins satirical or otherwise Still as evidenced by two previously uncollected stories in the recent Portions from a Wine Stained Notebook – “The Other” and “The Way it Happened” – Bukowski was never uite so two dimensional in style and subject matter as his critics would have us believe Pulp is not exactly his first trip into the realm of private eyes and the paranormal so it should come as no surprise how readily these seemingly foreign elements are assimilated into his standard tale of bars broads and brawlsBukowski’s earliest novels Post Office and Factotum did much to solidify his reputation as a writer of the streets his own life closely reflecting that of his tenderhearted tough guy alter ego Henry Chinaski Later efforts like Women and Ham on Rye continued this literary development while at the same time nurturing an increasingly effective autobiographical honesty With Pulp we are given the impression that Bukowski could’ve continued writing forever about anything had Lady Death not finally saw fit to extricate him and his typer from this world for good

    Pulp is Charles Bukowski’s last book So you get curious about that a dying man’s last words Is it the foxhole confession at last for a life long unapologetic vulgarian? Nah True to his stolid commitment to self deprecation satire of pretentiousness and constant drunkenness Bukowksi knowing he has little time left pens his first non Henry Chinaski fiction and dedicates it to “bad writing” His target here is noir fiction ala Mickey Spillane with Bukowski’s version named Nicky Belane It’s a wild often hilarious mishmash of satire of pseudo existentialist crime fiction We are all born to die We are all born to live where Bellane searches for a Red Sparrow as in Maltese Falcon and avoids Lady Death The idea as it is so many detective stories is that the detective is searching for clues to a mystery as he searches for the mystery of his own existence This mystery idea always has had some interesting thematic potential It actually describes some of the work of Nobel Prize winning writer Patric Modiano ie Missing Person who uses this theme with serious intent and successfully Bukowski isn't disinterested in the relationship between his work as a writer and his mortality but he mostly plays the theme for laughs here through detective Belane“It wasn’t my day My week My month My year My life God damn it”“I'm not dead yet just in a state of rapid decay who isn't?” “I gave him my code name 'This is Mr Slow Death’” There are literary tributes to his favorite writers Celine and Fante and plenty of booze and broads and bad jokes natch And space aliens instead of angelsThis should not be the first or only Bukowski you read and it is not his best work but my basic three star rating of this book adds a star because of the laugh out load humor he faces death with I like and admire thatThere’s a bunch of good reviews but I like this one a lot from Arthur I was going to just cut and paste some of what he uotes from the book but wth here’s the review

    “It wasn’t my day My week My month My year My life God damn it” Filthy sleazy surreal and hilarious Bukowski's final completed novel Pulp is a pulp fiction parody novel which centers on themes of death and betrayal The story follows the perspective of Nicky Belane a hard boiled old timer detective in LA trying to solve several strange surreal interconnected cases by waiting them out “I'm not dead yet just in a state of rapid decay who isn't?” Much of the writing is Bukowski musing about mortality and there are several metaphors signifying death Bukowski dedicates the story to bad writing as Bukowski did not plan his mystery novel well and freuently wrote Nicky Belane into holes from which he could not escape Bukowski wrote some of his most violent cynical sarcastic and shocking work during the final months of his life Many critics have agreed this novel exemplifies Bukowski showing an acceptance of his own pending mortalityThe story also makes multiple references to men of literature across the ages The name of character Nicky Belane rhymes suggestively with the name of author Mickey Spillane The Red Sparrow is a spoof of the Black Sparrow Press owned by John Martin who is parodied as John Barton in the novel The story mentions William Faulkners' As I Lay Dying multiple times There is also a character signifying French author Céline

    Pulp is the only one of Charles Bukowski’s novels that’s not written from the perspective of Bukowski’s alter ego Henry Chinaski After all the agonized and hilarious autobiographical accounts of pain frustration poor health and madness of his earlier novels the great man had at last come to a subject too enormous and painful to deal with directly This was Bukowski’s last novel published in 1994 the same year he died of leukemia at the age of 73 As he was writing this book he knew his days were numbered which saddens me as would loved to have seen him go out in blaze of filthy glory with something similar to 'Women' or 'Factotum' Just with a vulgar and laugh out nature that goes into overdrive one final swansong that says 'fuck you' After all this was what he will always be remembered for Not for trying to be Chandler Bukowski’s final novel is written as an allegory It’s a parody of the hard boiled detective genre with Bukowski’s heronarrator named “Nicky Belane” Belane spends most of the book looking for a mysterious “Red Sparrow” a thinly veiled reference to Dashiell Hammett’s Maltese Falcon but also a shout out to his publisher Black Sparrow Press which saved him from his hated job at the Post Office and first financed his writing full time Belane’s first client Lady Death hires him to find the long deceased novelist Celine one of Bukowski’s role models as a writerAlthough many moments in Pulp are pretty damn funny the fact there is no Hank just left me feeling a bit empty The characters we encounter could have been taken from any of the old classic detective novels so there is nothing really new here Belane’s innermost thoughts recurring throughout the novel are focused on Bukowski’s feelings about his own imminent death and his struggle to make sense of the inevitable this was hard going for me and I admit to shedding a tear feeling sad about Bukowski distracted me from the plotBut fear not Second reading things clicked better and I just went with it that's what Charlie would have have wantedreading partly in a bar helpedBukowski is probably up there now drunk in a slumber and urinating over the world below hope the lord can forgive him if not bollocks then

    'This whole thing is a bad senseless dream' I said 200That about sums it up; except it isn't bad It's not good either I felt like Bukowski was just playing a joke on his readers the whole time like hey let me just write some outlandish fiction with an absurd nonsensical plot and someone will publish it and lots of people will read it And I'm going to do that because I can And he did And he makes writing seem so easy And this makes me think that I could write a book like this simple sentences cliched dialogue random plot poorly developed characters And I know I can't yet he tells himself optimistically which is one of the reasons I liked this book he makes it seem easy I could read this cover to cover without getting bored by the prosaic writing or the trite characters Death aliens Louis Ferdinand Celine a than a few cartoon thugs And it's because Bukowski somehow makes all that crap palatable

    Nicky Belane is the best private dick in LA and that makes him a busy boy He must find the acclaimed long presumed dead French novelist Celine for Lady Death the ultimate femme fatale help a mortician escape a body snatching alien called Jeannie Nitro and find the Red Sparrow whatever that is But has Belane bitten off than he can chew this time? Charles Bukowski’s last book Pulp is a helluva way to go out and an odd one too given that his best known works Post Office Factotum Women and Ham on Rye were thinly veiled autobiography while Pulp is pure fiction But it’s a fantastic novel full of Bukowski’s signature wit and world weariness wrapped up in a swiftly moving plot and fast talking characters re reading it well over a decade after my first time it remains outstanding That said if you’ve never read Buk before I wouldn’t recommend Pulp as the best place to start mostly because it feels like a summary of his career The references abound his literary alter ego Henry Chinaski makes a brief cameo a hitman called Fante appears while Belane’s looking for Celine John Fante and Celine were Bukowski’s biggest literary influences notice the nod to pulp writer Mickey Spillane with the main character’s name Nicky Belane too and the Red Sparrow could be a reference to Black Sparrow Press Bukowski’s long time publisher Belane is a lot like Chinaski in that he spends a lot of time in bars having verbal fights with its barflies before starting physical ones He’s a misanthropic old bastard but Buk’s snappy dialogue makes him very entertaining company while also maintaining the noir feel of the narrative It’s often very funny too with Belane claiming to be expensive “Six bucks an hour” and trying to catch a cheating spouse on camera by clownishly chasing them yelling the repeated refrain “I’m gonna nail your ass”Buk came from the Hemingway school of spare writing so descriptions are minimal with a heavy emphasis on dialogue but at this point in his life he was so accomplished the reader is easily able to discern the characters from their speech alone though it’s fair to say they all come off as noir caricatures Still Buk was far playful than Hemingway which is why I like him so much better than tedious old pseudo macho Papa He even toys with different genres mixing in some Vonnegut esue sci fi to spice things up and it works More often than not writers lose their edge as they get older and their later work usually doesn’t stand up to their earlier famous novels Bukowski was the exception and Pulp shows an old pro as sharp as he ever was at the height of his powers But like she did for many of the characters in this book Lady Death came for Buk too mere months after he completed this Pulp is representative of Bukowski’s best work in being raw clever original funny accessible and superbly written The dedication says “To bad writing” which like the title is a nod to pulp fiction the irony being that many of those writers are today looked upon as masters Bukowski included This book’s also an excellent addition to the noir genre sliding easily amongst books by greats like Raymond Chandler and Horace McCoy Those familiar with Bukowski’s work will appreciate Pulp but if you’re a fan of noir fiction there’s no harm in jumping straight in with this novel This remains one of my favourite books by one of my favourite writers Pulp is a sparkling coda for a fine writer

For newcomers to the world of Charles Bukowski be forewarned Pulp is probably not the best place to startI say this not because it doesn’t rank right up there with his other books or because greener readers will fail to grasp the allusions to earlier work it contains but rather because as his ultimate novel completed months before his death Pulp can easily be seen as Bukowski’s final farewell In it the aged author takes his readers on one last foray into familiar territories of sex madness and death while at the same time expanding on those themes in brilliant and often unexpected ways Drawing on science fiction and hardboiled noir elements as well the end result is a bizarre send up of genre fiction that is just as hilarious and insightful as anything else he wroteIn any case “farewell” hardly seems the proper way to begin one’s relationship with a writer who spent the better part of five decades compiling such an impressive body of work Should readers feel obligated to start with Bukowski’s vast catalogue of poems novels and short stories if they expect to enjoy Pulp Certainly not But since they’d be missing out on some of the best American literature ever written

Bukowski is up to in this book is not very different from what he’s been up to in all the rest – painting an unapologetic portrait of people as they are often at their worst their absurd and futile lives rendered in full view with frank realism and usually great humor Bukowski laughs at the ineffectual masturbating detective because he really does deserve to be laughed at And yet Belane is allowed to continue with some semblance of decency because if there’s one thing we could all use of it’s probably that Pulp is a book that will make fans of sci fi and detective genre writing wonder what might have been had Bukowski decided to produce in those veins satirical or otherwise Still as evidenced by two previously uncollected stories in the recent Portions from a Wine Stained Notebook – “The Other” and “The Way it Happened” – Bukowski was never uite so two dimensional in style and subject matter as his critics would have us believe Pulp is not exactly his first trip into the realm of private eyes and the paranormal so it should come as no surprise how readily these seemingly foreign elements are assimilated into his standard tale of bars broads and brawlsBukowski’s earliest novels Post Office and Factotum did much to solidify his reputation as a writer of the streets his own life closely reflecting that of his tenderhearted tough guy alter ego Henry Chinaski Later efforts like Women and Ham on Rye continued this literary development while at the same time nurturing an increasingly effective autobiographical honesty With Pulp we are given the impression that

For newcomers to the world of Charles Bukowski be forewarned Pulp is probably not the best place to startI say this not because it doesn’t rank right up there with his other books or because greener readers will fail to grasp the allusions to Phobos earlier work it contains but rather because as his ultimate novel completed months before his death Pulp can CHWASTY POLSKIE - KLASYKI POLSKIEJ EROTYKI easily be seen as Bukowski’s final farewell In it the aged author takes his readers on one last foray into familiar territories of sex madness and death while at the same time World of Warcraft: Arthas: Rise of the Lich King expanding on those themes in brilliant and often unexpected ways Drawing on science fiction and hardboiled noir Keith Richards elements as well the My Poems end result is a bizarre send up of genre fiction that is just as hilarious and insightful as anything My Poems: Selected Poetry of Marina Tsvetaeva else he wroteIn any case “farewell” hardly seems the proper way to begin one’s relationship with a writer who spent the better part of five decades compiling such an impressive body of work Should readers feel obligated to start with Bukowski’s vast catalogue of poems novels and short stories if they A New Song [UNABRIDGED CD] (Audiobook) (Book 5, The Mitford Series) expect to The Wheels Of If And Other Science-Fiction enjoy Pulp Certainly not But since they’d be missing out on some of the best American literature The Wheels Of If And Other Science-Fiction ever written in bypassing these altogether astute readers would do well to check out a few of his other books as wellBut this is supposed to be a review of Pulp now isn’t itThe plot follows the convoluted capers of one Nick Belane a down on his luck private The Wheels of If eye who somehow manages to stumble upon the case of the century Well like a handful of cases – Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person each of them Flashman and the Dragon eually obtuse and none of them leading anywhere but Schoolies: My School Day: Learn, Laugh and Play ever deeper into a darkly comic The Barbarian's Owned (Celestial Mates Book 1) (English Edition) existential nightmare Initially retained by Lady Death a literal femme fatale to track down the presumably long dead French novelist Céline the plot thickens as Belane is also hired by a husband who suspects his wife of cheating a mortician in search of a body snatching space alien and yet another client who asks him to find someone or something known only as the “Red Sparrow”Plot wise that’s about all you really need to know about Pulp but if plot and character development are what you’re after in a book then this one probably isn’t for you Many times throughout his career Bukowski was uoted as saying “genius might be the ability to say a profound thing in a simple way” This austere philosophy of writing is perhaps most succinctly put by the pithy Diego Rivera: The Complete Murals epitaph adorning his tombstone DON’T TRY Whether Bukowski was a genius himself or whether his final piece of advice should apply to all writers – these are subjects for another time The point here is that like Hemingway at his best Bukowski managed to provoke a breadth and depth of intellectual and The Fox's Craft in Japanese Religion and Folklore: Shapeshifters, Transformations, and Duplicities emotional responses in his work using only a sparse Modern Antiques for the Table: A Guide to Tabletop Accessories of 1890-1940 economy of words and dialogue and Pulp is no Fataal exceptionA large portion of Bukowski’s writing had a satirical bent to it and though it would be a simplification to label him a satirist outright there can be no denying that much of his fiction contains a strong The Yeast Connection and Women's Health element of lampoon Whether denigrating himself or poking fun at such sacrosanct notions as god country and anything Pax Romana: And the Peace of Jesus Christ else associated with the American herd mentality one cannot read Bukowski and come away without noticing the inordinate amount of tongue in his cheek In Pulp Bukowski sets his sights on writing itself – specifically the contrived conventions of genre writingIt is no coincidence after all that Pulp is called what it’s called the title being a reference to tawdry dime novels of times past or that the book itself is dedicated “to bad writing” Still if there is any writer capable of taking something bad and making it so much worse that it World Cultures: Borneo ends up being good it is Bukowski Consider the following Agir dans un monde incertain - Essai sur la démocratie technique excerpt from chapter nineI had to straighten out the Celine matter and find the Red Sparrow and here was this flabby ball of flesh worried because his wife was screwing somebodyThen he spoke “I just want to find out I just want to find out for myself”“I don’t come cheap”“How much”“6 bucks an hour”“That doesn’t seem like much money”“Does to me You got a photo of your wife”He dug into his wallet come up with one handed it to meI looked at it“Oh my Does she really look like this”“Yes”“I’m getting a hard on just looking at this”“Hey don’t be a wise guy”“Oh sorry But I’ll have to keep the photo I’ll return it when I’m finished”I put it in my wallet“Is she still living with you”“Yes”“And you go to work”“Yes”“And then sometimes she”“Yes”“And what makes you think she”“Tips phone calls voices in my head her changed behavior any number of things”I pushed a notepad toward him“Put down your address home and business phone home and business I’ll take it from here I’ll nail her ass to the wall I’ll uncover the whole thing”“What”“I am accepting this case Mr Bass Upon its fruition you will be informed”“‘Fruition’” he asked “Listen are you alright”“I’m straight How about you”“Oh yeah I’m alright”“Then don’t worry I’m your man I’ll nail her ass”Bass rose slowly from his chair He moved toward the door then turned“Barton recommended you”“There you go then Good afternoon Mr Bass”The door closed and he was gone Good old BartonI took her photo out of my wallet and sat there looking at itYou bitch I thought you bitchI got up and locked the door then took the phone off the hook I sat behind my desk looking at the photoYou bitch I thought I’ll nail your ass Against the wall No mercy for you I’ll catch you in the act I’ll catch you at it You whore you bitch you whoreI began breathing heavily I unzipped Then the Pink Ribbon Blues earthuake hit I dropped the photo and ducked under the desk It was a good one Around a 6 Felt like it lasted a couple of minutes Then it stopped I crawled out from under the desk still unzipped I found the photo again put it back in my wallet zipped up Sex was a trap a snare It was for animals I had too much sense for that kind of crap I put the phone back on the hook opened the door stepped out locked it and walked down to the Szósta klepka elevator I had work to do I was the best dick in LA and Hollywood I hit the button and waited for the fucking Gunz & Karma: Romance In The Hood elevator to come on upA bit juvenile for the writing of a 73 year old man Perhaps But what Bukowski is up to in this book is not very different from what he’s been up to in all the rest – painting an unapologetic portrait of people as they are often at their worst their absurd and futile lives rendered in full view with frank realism and usually great humor Bukowski laughs at the ineffectual masturbating detective because he really does deserve to be laughed at And yet Belane is allowed to continue with some semblance of decency because if there’s one thing we could all use of it’s probably that Pulp is a book that will make fans of sci fi and detective genre writing wonder what might have been had Bukowski decided to produce in those veins satirical or otherwise Still as Tschick evidenced by two previously uncollected stories in the recent Portions from a Wine Stained Notebook – “The Other” and “The Way it Happened” – Bukowski was never uite so two dimensional in style and subject matter as his critics would have us believe Pulp is not Softball Catchers Drills: easy guide to perfect your softball catching today!
