I could understand it mostly because of my genuine pinhead persona and slow wit. I found that easier to read than the Linda King I've read which in all fairness isn't enough for my opinion to matter. So was the guy saying he was a gigolo?
I had missed this. I was re reading bits of Loving and Hating Charles Bukowski by Linda King. Read My First Admirer, wondered who he was and ended up back here with that article posted by Johannes. Can't get out of trouble. :)
We get to know who Billy Thong from a couple of Buk's poems and Nicole* from Women were, and we learn more about Claude Powell.
*It seems to be the same woman that features in The New Woman, We Both Knew Him and Culture from Dangling in the Tournefortia.
I don't know how I had missed this link when reading the forums for the first time.
