Los Angeles is the setting for most of the stories in this anthology. In real life, it is author Henry Bukowski's residence for most of his life. Most of the stories take place in generic bars, apartment houses, hospital wards, and the rare place of employment in or near the skid row sections of Los Angeles.

Some stories are set in the Venice Beach section of Los Angeles, the Hollywood Park racetrack, a Hollywood mansion.
