love to you and all the buk fans!
Really enjoyed reading that excerpt Ponder and look forward to the book, but was puzzled a bit by her not being able to do a thesis on the poet as an entertainer? why not, that is their origins; the Troubadours of the 11th and 12th century did just that, all across Europe, read poems, played insrtuments, sang. A lot of it was just as bawdy as Bukowski's poetry . Fizzled out with the Black Death as you can imagine, but still, how could they have dismissed her desire to research it.
