I just got back from watching a documentary about Charles Bukowski with Jim. It wasn't the best film I've ever seen. In fact it was kind of dull. But, it did make me want to read some of Bukowski's writing because I haven't read any.
Hell, I hadn't even heard of him until five or six years ago when Eric Plumley was talking about him while crusing down 4th Ave. after a Golden Gloves night out. Being an Eric Plumley fan, a Tom Waits fan (sorry Eric I know you probably don't like Tom Waits), and a fan of writing that is low on metaphor usage, I should give Mr. Bukowski a chance.
Which begs the question, where should I start?
