Read in July, 2006

I once told a friend I went back to reading Bukowski like an abusive boyfriend. His raw snapshot of life reminds me more of the worn couch sitting decaying in my neighbors yard than the fresh writing style of Kerouac's that I love. His misogyny is infuriating, to say the least. Yet, no one is perfect. Bukowski is vulgar but intelligent. His women are disposable but his portraits of life still retain such clarity I know he must care about these women a little bit. In some way. Right?
