Hi! You can call me Penny Lane. (I love you if you get my Beatles/Almost Famous reference.) I'll start this by mentioning how much I love Bukowski. I really fucking love the man. I stumbled upon a quote by him when I was fourteen and the rest was history. For the most part, I tend to read more of his poetry than novels/short stories. Both are good though! I was having a lot of Bukowski-centric thoughts today after finishing Burning in Water Drowning in Flame. I decided to read some about Bukowski online when I found this forum. I don't really know many people in my area that are really into his work, so this seemed like a neat idea. I'm excited to learn more about Bukowski and myself through this. Thanks!
