Hello, I am new here. I have been reading Bukowski's poetry for quite some years never knowing who he really was until I came across his novel 'Factotum' and researched a bit about him. As a fiction writer, his book is my guide. His book is the only one that stays on my bed all the time. What I like about his writing are the details. Vivid and vibrant. He makes me watch his stories. Not everyone can do that. Actually, I have read hundreds of books but I never found anyone as vivid as him. So, he might be the only one.
