    The senseless, tragic rape of Charles Bukowski’s ghost by John Martin’s Black Sparrow Press

    I'd add Hot Water Music to that. John Martin's fantasy of no such thing as alcohol, drug or domestic abuse (may impact sales). Someone posted Buk's original of A Couple Of Gigolos from his article in the free press and, what a change! He wrote about needing to watch Martin more closely but...

    The senseless, tragic rape of Charles Bukowski’s ghost by John Martin’s Black Sparrow Press

    "In the decades since Bukowski's passing, the esteem and respect of Martin's peers and supporters continues to grow" Martin is in a rage. Living with all that money begotten from his cash cow that up and died.

    The neutering of prose by Martin when Bukowski was alive

    Sickening. Supposedly Martin was the 'savior' of Buk, to learn he raped his most intimate writings, disgusted. Is it too much to ask a publisher to publish, as the writer has writ?

    What buk piece effects you the most emotionally in a personal way?

    The Great Zen Wedding I got my photos taken all over again. Fingerprinted all over again. They took me down to the drunk tank, opened that door. After that it was just a matter of looking for floorspace among the 150 men in the room. One shitpot. Vomit and piss everywhere. I found a spot...

    he walked up and down the aisle. barefooted. "Mr. Skorski," the stewardess told him, "please stay in your seat." "Graziano. the Rock. and who the hell stole my shoes and socks? I'll bust 'em in half." He vomited there in the aisle and an old woman actually hissed at him like a snake. "Mr...

    What buk piece effects you the most emotionally in a personal way?

    I forgot where I parked my car and I walked along. I walked along and walked along in the rain. I got to a bar. Went in. For a rainy night, the place was quite crowded. I could only find one seat. There was a young woman sitting there. Nothing special but I thought I'd try it. "Hey baby, I'm...

    What buk piece effects you the most emotionally in a personal way?

    I awakened depressed. I looked up at the ceiling, at the cracks in the ceiling. I saw a buffalo running over something. I think it was me. Then I saw a snake with a rabbit in his mouth. The sun came through the rips in the shade and formed a swastika on my belly. My bunghole itched. Were my...

    Favorite Bukowski You OWN

    Factotum. I've been through that life. What he says rings true even down to Janeway Smithson saying 25 years on the job like it is a good thing, to wheeling a bone barrow down the rows of boners at an abattoir and having to prove yourself worthy of doing that.

    The Last Night of the Earth Poems

    From "days like razors, nights full of rats" but I remember one fellow who wrote an entire book in which he proved that the moon was not there and he did it so well that afterwards you thought, he's absolutely right, the moon is not there. Anyone have an idea who this is? P.S...

    Novels One night I was drunker than usual. I refused to punch in. "This is it," I told them. The Elf was in trauma. "How will we make it, Chinaski?" "Ah." "_Give us one more night!_" I got his head in the crook of my arm, squeezed; his ears turned pink. "Little bastard," I...
