I was so excited to find that a forum such as this existed... If I would have been alive during Bukowski's days of womanizing I would have loved to have been one of his groupies. I wouldn't be exciting enough to have kept his attention though... I'm far too monogamous. Oh, well. I was introduced to Bukowski one year ago in my advanced English class with the poem "Eulogy for one hell of a dame," which remains to be my favorite poem of his, second only to "A smile to remember." A few months later I read Factotum and have been wildly infatuated with his work ever since.
