How I Found Buk (1 Viewer)

We were at 5th Avenue Books in San Diego and searching the stacks. My brother asked me what to read next, so I told him to check out one of Bukowski's books. It was a strange suggestion for me to make because I hadn't read a single book by him. I had first heard about Bukowski from a blonde who was a couple grades ahead of me in high school. She was known as a particularly svelte dancer. Unfortunately, I never got to know her better, but at least I found Bukowski through her. Over the years he's become one of my favorite writers, thanks to the stripper.

As for me, here are some of the essentials... I'm a factotum and a student. I've lived in San Diego for most of my life. I used to play guitar, but now I spend more time reading, writing, and drinking...

Let's leave it at that for now. The anecdotes will come later.
