Uncle Buk at his most surreal,
By A Customer
This review is from: Notes of a Dirty Old Man (Paperback)
Having read the likes of Post Office, Women, Factotum & The Most Beautiful Woman in Town I picked this up in great expectation. Once again Uncle Buk didnt disappoint.
This is a collection of his columns published in a newspaper in the late 60's. Allowed the freedom to write practically uncensored, Bukowski explores some surreal parts of his imagination.
Those who know his style will enjoy this immensley. If you're buying some Uncle Buk for the first time I would recommend any of the books I mentioned at the start.
The only reason I didnt give this 5 stars was because a small minority of the pieces were just too surreal for me. It was still a fantastic read and some contemporary writers would do well to read some of this mans work.
