If u don't know the poetry u don't know Bukowski
Was it just: Mexico, France & Germany?
He went to Vancouver B.C. in October 1976 for a reading. Buk and Al Purdy never met face to face.
Ah, the Buk-Purdy letters. I have it too. It was my first letter book. Maybe not the best letter book, but interesting all the same...
Yeah, I've heard about that infamous "Glasgow smile" they have over there...Glasgow was infamous for being a brutal tough-boy City, it still is....but not quite as much....
Good Purdy-poem by the way. The ironic repetition of the phrase "sensitive man" has a sort of Buk-ring to it... I enjoyed reading the Purdy-letters. Seems to me Buk lets down his tough-guy guard there a bit. I remember Purdy praising Buk's poem "The Shower" there.
