    Identifying a Short Story

    Sounds for the most part similar to "Reunion" from Tales of Ordinary Madness minus the fact that the story begins with him returning home from the hospital. Since you haven't listed the above book as one you've read this might be one to revisit. Hope this helps.

    What Are You Reading?

    Just finished "The Story of the Eye" by Georges Bataille...and I have absolutely no idea why this book is deemed important. After a few weeks of exploring "subversive" French literature, reading Salo by De Sade and Journey by Celine this month, I've concluded that it isn't something I'm into...

    "War All the Time" Poem

    Does anyone have access to the actual poem titled "war all the time"? It exists in the database but not in the book with the same title. There is a line in the book from the poem "pace is the essence" which reads: "those guys think it's got to be previous hit war all the time." So did this...

    Just read one where he mentioned hydrangeas. It's the way you play the game In love is a dog from hell "Vomiting as you go Into the Hydrangea"

    Signed first edition?

Even if this copy was mine I wouldn't sell it, I just love that it found me. I have 11 dollars to my name, work somewhere where I...

    Bukowski and social media

    I was watching a documentary about social media "poetry" and one of the women was saying she wondered how certain writers would have implemented social media sites in the self publication of their poetry, one of the names she mention was Bukowski and this got me thinking. Do you think he would...

    Signed first edition?

    Yes I obviously cant keep it but it's just such a cool experience to be able to see the book with original artwork and touch something Bukowski touched. I know he signed the pages before they went into the book and he signed 3100 of them but still. It has a magic to it. Maybe it will bring me...

    Signed first edition?

    It's legitimate, I've verified it with the library's records. This is a non-circulation, special collection book that some student worker must have actually sent out by accident, it has to be worth quite a bit. I'm astonished to be holding it, it is a really special feeling.
