This book is actually a collection of his journal entries from his later years - the last entry is about a year before his death, and it's really sad to read, really. I do enjoy his poetry and fiction, actually prefer it, but this was an interesting read nonetheless.

A lot of people make Bukowski out to be a complete ******* and a monster, but he was really just human and coping with things in his own way. When reading his stuff, that shines through.

**** haters, Bukowski rules. "so you want to be a writer" is one of the best poems ever written & Ham on Rye is ****ing hilarious


I'm reading



I'm not sure whether I like it or not, I must, because I keep reading it with interest. It just seems rather boring but still has a lot of good **** in it. Ah well



and this, I just started on this but I like it so far

I've wanted to read it for a long time, because I like her poetry. The pace is seemingly very slow so far, but it's not too bad. I haven't really formed an opinion yet but I do like the way she writes.

I'm reading the Harry Potter series right now. I am on The Goblet of Fire. It's getting really intense.

This book is basically about two things: zombies and sex. And yes, sometimes that entails the two together. And the writing is terrible.



Just started this one...as in I'm only two pages in. Reading it for book club.

I used to love this book as a teenager, I could relate to it so much which is probably why. Though I don't think it does a lot for many other people I know.
