    Crucifix in a Deathhand title

    Depends a lot on the condition you'd request. If you can live with a couple of minor flaws (and assuming you're no hardcore collector, you definitely can) it goes at amazingly cheap prizes. This IS, what I call amazingly cheap. I've bought mine for about 250.- USD somewhen around 2004-2006 and...

    Database updated

    ok, I'll solve this riddle. - Poque didn't show a seperate (additional) True-Story page, but a close up of the same (for reading-convenience, I guess). - The folding-lines appear to be correct and matching, when you put every bit in its right place. Like so: I can't remember having ever...

    Did Bukowski buy books

    He owned a copy of Schopenhauer's "Parerga and Paralipomena", which were sent to him as a gift by a German guy named Ulrich Aigner in 1984 (which goes to show, how he came to nod so much to Schopenhauer in "You Get So Alone", 1986).

    What are you listening to? The world really needs to know. Volume 8

    That hurts me. But I refrain trying to be cheering-up. Would not only be useless: would be an insult to a suffering person. Only thing at all, I can do, is sharing some connecting feelings:

    existentialism for dummies...

    The Prisoner: Haha, I've just rediscovered this old dialog of ours (from 2012): And since Bukowski-fans use to be deeply into Heavy-Metal (as we all know), this is the moment when you should be made aware that the intro to Iron Maiden's song "Free Man" is containing David's above quote...

    existentialism for dummies...

    Yeah. And this spring it literally became a bestseller again in Europe (we all know why). This should answer your question: . . . oh, and talking KAFKA: You definitely should watch this movie by Soderbergh with Jeremy Irons: It's neither a bio-pic nor a picturization of a work, but...

    existentialism for dummies...

    btw.: if you ask for a starting point with DOSTOYEVSKY: "Dream of a Ridiculous Man" is definitely a sure bet! It's a short-story, so you don't need the long breath like with his novels (including the screw to remember 3-6 different names for the same persons). Also it really is...

    existentialism for dummies...

    The problem with KAFKA (for an emotional reader) is, that he writes about horrible things, but in a calm voice, almost like the narrator of the TV-news. He is Not "screaming when he's burning". That's why it took me a couple of attempts over many years to connect. "The Trial" is a great...

    existentialism for dummies...

    I've always claimed, that Bukowski is an existentialist. Like here: The others on the list are: - Schopenhauer - Nietzsche - Kierkegaard - Camus - Dostoevski - Judy Blume - Houellebecq - Rimbaud - Cioran - Pessoa - Beckett ... and maybe Jane Austen does that add up to 10 all in all?

    Unknown Bukowski pictures?

    Could be true in many cases. Still, feel free to post. Better to see a pic a second time than not at all.
