    GG Allin: "Drink, Fight and Fuck"

    was GG Allin's motto, similarly enough to Buks "Drink, Write and Fuck". I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with the guy or his life story but I am frankly intrigued with him as I am Bukowski. If there is anyone who reminds me of Buk it's this guy, Mr. Allin. He was invited to a University for...

    After reading Factotum

    I noticed at least 3 of the chapters relating almost entirely to short stories. So I'm left wondering if the short stories were taking from the book or if Bukowski just decided to throw them in being such good stories they were. Any knowledge on this?

    Do you think you'd of got along with Buk?
