Here’s a video to make you think a little… But maybe don’t think too much or it might drive you to alcoholism the same as Bukowski, but then again being an alcoholic sure didn’t seem to bother him.
I finished Women and as it is the only Bukowski I have read, I have nothing else of his to compare it too, although I must say that from what I have heard of him the premise of the book is exactly what I had expected.
But I must also add that he is an exceptional writer and manages to somehow repeat the same events every three pages and still keep it exciting and engaging. It is a 286 page book and I finished in a couple of days, never wanting to put it down. Usually if that is the case it means it is a mysterious, plot driven novel. But that is not true with this book, with Bukowski it is just well written, unbelievable, and shocking.
But you keep reading. You have to keep reading.
