Read in August, 2008

So what is a middle-class old woman who seldom drinks and never fights doing reading this book?

Enjoying the hell out of it.

message 1: by Ken (new) - rated it 4 stars

Ken I read this two years ago. I enjoyed the hell out of it, too -- then promptly forgot everything about it. Ring on deli, I guess.

Jayne I haven't read this one, but love your response. You'll never really be old, Ruth. You have too much spirit.

Monica Dear Newengland, I'm a fan of Ruth's and want to know if you wanna be friends. Sorry to do it here but I don't know the name of your dog.


Andrew Frischerz Haha!! This is great. Bukowski is amazing.


Jalawa I totally agree. He is very humorous. I find myself laughing with each page (almost). He lived a tough one with that father and mother if his. They had to be mentally ill. Maybe just never diagnosed.
