Bukowski is drunk
13 March 2009 | by (CZECH REPUBLIC) – See all my reviews

Bukowski is drunk, reads poetry, talks about life amongst other things. In all, it's interesting because Bukowski was such a good writer and you'll be pulled in.

I read all of Bukowski's work and loved the stuff, especially post office: A Novel by Charles Bukowski, Factotum by Charles Bukowski and Pulp by Charles Bukowski.

If you don't like Bukowski then you'll probably be bored out of your mind. Some people have trouble because he drank so much and lived in some shoddy place in L.A.

Bukowski is drunk, reads poetry, talks about life amongst other things.

You'll be pulled in.
