Bukowski is man Bukowski is the soul of every neighbourhood The one who makes children stare and consoles those of wavering self confidence with his stark depravity He is the lowest of the low But not so low For he has perfected a powerful art Just as Hunter Thompson formed his very being into a thesis statement on what it is to be both freely insane and insanely free Bukowski s stories chisel an everlasting sculpture of The Man In Pain The Man Taken To Self Loathing and DrinkEach story in this collection regardless of its level of imagination whether it be a didactic essay on horse betting or a contemporary fable retelling a man s Class of 92: Out of Our League gradual transfiguration into literal sexual objection every story is an attempted prison break from the rampant sensitivity and need for understanding that consumes him Henry Bukowski is simultaneously a thickly woven persona of austere rugged poesy and a blasted second consciousness haunted by the echoes of his hellishly tortured spirit Echoes reminding him that he MUST care and urgently seek to be cared for That woman and liuor is the eternal boon and bane of his eternity And that life must be seen through to the endHis is the voice of all those with an instinctive mistrust for that which brings comfort and fleetinglimmers of happiness In short he is a modern soul brutally revealed No one can walk away from his voice unaffected Comedy Outrage Shame Sympathy Disgust Regardless he is no shrug of the shoulder This book Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story got very profound around The Fiend The most transgressive piece of literature I have read It was a bit like that story at least in this compilation triggered some sort of different writing in Bukowski I would be interested to hear what others thought of this compilation See it they had teh same reaction The order of the stories seems to be vital to my feelings here Thanks.
