story at in It s the first time I read Bukowski and I have to say it s uite disturbing Too sick too raw in his descriptions He himself plays the role of the romantic anti hero but even worse Maybe it s me but It s sometimes hard for me while reading to reach the real Bukowski a man who I want to believe has moral and sensitivity Some people review his books as funny and easy going but I personally feel some of the stories are too sick to augh at I suppose it is hard to feel empathy with someone whose mind is absolutely unreachable for normal people Though he s got some surprisingly interesting uotes which make the book worth reading Didn t A Boy in Winter like it very much Too vulgar and sometimes even disgusting I think Bukowski is not a rebel or an outcast but just an old crazy who knew damn well how to write He makes many reflections criticizing the system and has no pity for showing him as he is I m pretty sure many of the short stories in which the book is divided are actual experiencesived by his own The way he makes jokes about himself and then he puts the brake with sarcasm and cynicism is just magical We take the pill and they call us the crazy onesFuck Machine Paperback by Charles Bukowski.
