oh noes its a new person! (1 Viewer)

Hey there everyone. My name is Laura Stuart. A friend of mine got me interested in Bukowski's work, and I've been all over the place learning, reading, etc. I think I'm obsessed with the guy.

Anyway, I'm an Englsih major. I'm what you'd call a "professional student". I've been in college for 6 years now, and I don't see myself graduating anytime soon. I live in Akron Ohio, and it's not such a bad little city.

I've run out of things to say, but I'll try to be active on your forums.

My first taste of the Bukmeister came when someone lent me a battared copy of Post Office about 4 years ago. Since then I've been hooked...read absolutely everything (well all the novels, short stories and some of his poetry books).

before i read him, i read nothing. i always thought 'books are rubbish mate'. that of course was due to all the dull books i had to read at school.
yet through buk i got into so many great writers (fante, celine, hamsun, dosteovsky, and other stuff buk may not have liked such as henry miller and some burroughs)

i've just ordered a copy of a book of his interviews, 'sunlight here i am.'
i enjoyed reading the books of his letters. just as enlightening as reading his prose and poetry imho.
