    How did Bukowski work? his Routine?

    I love this! more comments about nonsense than about the actual posed question. So entertaining! I can cancel Netflix and just post questions about Bukowski and watch the dementia unfold. Much more entertaining than the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt! Thank you! I know. It's all my fault.

    How did Bukowski work? his Routine?

I then responded to the "strong feeling" that someone "never could understand" my question... which...

Part of his explanation of the candy bar diet was...

    The heart is a lonely hunter

    I was just reading that Buk was influenced heavily by The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. I'll have to check it out. Anyone else read it? Do you see the influence? Care to comment on his influence/relationship with Carson McCullers? She was called the French Anais Nin?

    Bought this buk book and it has interesting inscription

    This seems like a fascinating read although the Amazon reviews are pretty damning. Saying that essentially Black Sparrow was reaching deep on this one. I didn't know Martinelli was an Anais Nin colleague.

    lester bangs and bukowski

    Thank you for all this. I am ashamed to say, as a musician and writer, that I have never read Lester but due to his connection with Buk, I will now plumb the depths. Thank you!

Any other outlets/sources you guys can find him? I couldn't find much on him in podcasts... (hint, hint, someone should start...
