"And then when you have to face the same juiceless draining job each day , . . it rather wrenches the fucking guts, especially when you note your co-workers accepting their death-in-life without a struggle, without question."
Great quote there. I'm too lazy too Google (too many dirty diapers today)... Who is Paul Peditto?
Thank you very much Chronic, you did good. I couldn't stop reading it until I finished it. I have only read a few letters of Bukowski and reading those I got the real feeling of a very easy monolouge(sp). He put some very personal ideas and advice out there. Bukowski must have liked Paul.
If you were writing a play about Bukowski, and he sent you a letter that said;
"I don't know about plays but I do know that you need actors and that's the bad part. Those vain prissies. I don't like the way they talk, the way they look, the way they walk. I don't like their eyes or their clothes or their shoes or the way they breathe. They dehumanize and devitalize the best of lines. I wish monkies talked. There would be a better chance."
