I read this book many years ago, thinking it was a book of Bukowski's poetry when I plucked it from the library shelf. It is actually passages from Bukowski's diary written in the last days of his life.

I actually liked Bukowski more after reading these pages. He seemed to have mellowed with age, to have turned into a not so bad old guy.

Raegan Butcher I agree; I enjoy seeing the softer side of him. Listening to him describe his cats is always amusing.

Joshlynn What I love about that is that it'd probably make fans of his like him less.
