Literary Pick (****)

-Charles Bukowski

All I've ever heard or read about Charles Bukowski is what a massive misogynist he is, which is why it's taken me this long to read any of his work, but judging from this novel alone I simply don't see proof of this. He's a repulsive alcoholic who wants to fuck women, and what repulsive alcoholic doesn't? And so he does, but the women he beds are women who want to be screwed, literally or figuratively, so how does that a misogynist make?

I think it's the ideas of these idiot 20-something pseudo-feminist sluts who think riding the subway on No Pants Day in NYC, or being an attention whore is empowerment. 

Great book. Great writer.
