5.0 out of 5 stars Women, Love, Life...Bukowski Style!,, 26 Mar 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Women (Paperback)
For those of you who are interested in the writings of one of the best modern American writers, Bukowski is your only choice. This, much like all of Bukowski's books, is almost entirely auto-biographical. The name is Henry Chinaski, he was a postman, he was a gambler, and now he focuses on his lovelife in WOMEN.
It's hard to get into the actual content of this book because Bukowski's books don't follow plotlines and simple three act structures. This book is simply an incredibly detailed look into Bukowski's relationships with women. From a woman who is loaded with cash to a nymphomaniac who is very violent, to a woman that has his child and then ...I'll let you get to that.
He gives very intimate and explicit accounts of experience as well as his inability to maintain a regular relationship with a female. Critics view this as bad writing, but I find it to be a very good account of the human condition, the inability of many to remain monogamous and the attempts by many to change the people the love, or at least claim to love. This a great book. I agree with another reviewer who also recommended THE LOSERS' CLUB by Richard Perez. These 2 books are my favorite recent Amazon purchases!
