As do I. I believe I'll get Tropic of Capricorn next, since it's supposed to be a sequel. Until then, I'm going to start on "Ironweed," by William Kennedy.

Bukowski. What can one say about him, really? Not a pleasent person, that is for sure. But then again, what artist usually is? He was an amazing writer, and even better poet. I've only recently gotten into him, but I'm glad I did.

Quite a few actually (look at say, Sonic Youth for instance) though I don't discount somebody's art just for being an asshole (unless I know them, then it gets harder to separate their art from their bad acts). I love Bukowski too. I think it's largely a myth though that all artists are difficult people, and all too often the myth is used by jerks to make themselves feel superior since they obviously must be geniuses to be such dicks.

Yes, but because of that, the myth is usually not so much of a myth as it is a stereotype, the difference being that while myths may have no basis on anything, stereotypes are usually backed up with plenty of examples.

I don't think Bukowski was that terrible of a guy. He had his problems, was very honest, and liked his booze and women, but he realised all this, so doesn't that counteract all of that? He just wasn't as bad as most people make out. I found great pleasure in his Selected Letters* books, and I'm not a saddist. He was quite the gentle creature at times, too.

*As I do his poetry and his novels. But the Letters are very raw and stripped back to the bone.

Didn't say he was a bad guy, just not very pleasant, that's all

Right now I'm reading Blood Meridian (Cormac McCarthy) and Imperial Life in the Emerald City (Rajiv Chandrasekaran)

Cormac McCarthy is always great; The Road is the greatest book I've read in a long while.

this would have been a great coincidence except that you posted this 10 days ago-- i just picked up blood meridian, which i had started & temporarily stopped reading (2 years), and i'm about to give it a go (again).

i'm also just started nietzsche's daybreak, a good edition

 


anyway that is that
