it was amazing

The movie The Barfly peeked my interest in Charles Bukowski and since seeing it I have purchased almost all his books. He is hilarious, dirty, dingy, a drunk, a womanizer, a gambler, and best of all he knows it and does not care. Oh, and he is brilliant. He lived and played in the southern California area of San Pedro, frequenting Hollywood Park Race Track. I grew up in that area and found it easy to imagine that scraggly old man walking down the streets. Maybe I even saw him? His books of fiction, poems, etc. are not for the prudish...
