108. More Notes of a Dirty Old Man...

More Notes of a Dirty Old Man: The Uncollected Columns
by Charles Bukowski

Started: September 11, 2011

Hell, in some ways I think I may have enjoyed this more than the original Notes of a Dirty Old Man as it spans more of Bukowski's career instead of just focusing on 1967-1969. The long ending piece about the making of Barfly and his friend the gambler is one of my new favorite Bukowski pieces. 248 pages. Grade: A+
