I'd been vaguely aware of Bukowski for a few years now, but hadn't read anything. Not sure what prompted me to finally give him a try. Glad I did, though. Thoroughly enjoyed this. Minimalist writing. Every word is important, not unlike poetry, of which he wrote quite a bit. I'll be reading more from him.

Bukowski's alright.  He wrote some good stuff, but he also wrote a ton of crap.

That whole school of dudes who drink a lot/do a ton of drugs writing depressing stories of the underworld is a little tired.  The characters and themes are all pretty similar whether it is Bukowski or Kerouac or even Hemingway.  It's like hair metal or something.  There are some legit geniuses in that genre, and Bukowski is one of them.  But for every Van Halen there are 20 Erik Turners.  And after awhile, it makes even the originators and true artists just seem like caricatures.

I'm more interested in Betty/Jane Cooney Baker than Chinaski/Bukowski.

There were certainly some bits that were showing their age, particularly when it came to race and gender. What appealed to me most was the economic use of language: A handful of words to convey lots of meaning or imagery. And almost every single character was vivid. Not necessarily what they looked like, but how they acted and spoke.

the only other thing i know about bukowski (outside of my friend's remark that he was a pervert like burroughs) is that he had a deep understanding with alcohol for the release it had on his mind.  he wanted to be mindful of it's dangerous awesome powers that he may harness his wizardry for years to come

I don't know if that idea comes through in all his novels, but it was present in Hollywood.

41. Hollywood - Charles Bukowski
42. Modern Classics of Fantasy - Edited by Gardner Dozois

Two caveats: I chose this as bedtime reading, and fantasy is not my genre of choice. The latter is partly why it was the former. I read myself to sleep with books that aren't exciting or don't hold lots of interest for me. Often I'll re-read a book.

With that in mind, I wasn't impressed with this collection of stories. None of them inspired me to check out the writer's other works. (I should mention I've already read lots of Ursula K. Le Guin, so that one doesn't count.) The stories spanned the last hundred years, give or take, and I was surprised by some of the earliest ones, and how dated they were. One started out promising with a seemingly strong female lead, but she turned into a boy-crazy idiot the moment a man walked onto the scene.

Anyway, to be fair, this collection of fantasy short stories may actually be quite good, but I would not be among those who think so. (It does rate fairly well on Goodreads, after all, with a 3.83 out of 5...)

1. "Near Enemy: A Spademan Novel" - Adam Sternbergh
2. "Commonwealth" - Ann Patchett - I could not have loved his more. LOVED TO THE MAX! My first time reading one of her novels and it will not be my last.
3. "Today Will Be Different" - Maria Semple - I totally thought this book was going to solely be about some woman's "first- world problems". But, it started taking all of these twists and turns and was much more than I thought it would be.
4. "A Gentleman in Moscow" - Amor Towles - Some moments were soooooooo slow, while I previously noted that I could live forever in the chapter from Book 2 titled, “1926: Adieu”.
5. "State of Wonder" - Ann Patchett - This author can create the most amazing stories. So rich and emotional.
6. "This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage" - Ann Patchett
7. "Spoiled" - Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan - GFY girls write a YA book. Too Y and not enough A for me, even for a last minute beach read.

Looks like I'm back in the habit of reading bits of books and giving up on them. Hrumpf.

8. "Modern Lovers" - Emma Straub - I thought I liked where the book was going but then it seemed like she just got lazy and gave up by using some newspaper clippings to tie everything up. BOO.
9. "The Hate U Give" - Angie Thomas
10. "The Wrong Side of Goodbye" - Michael Connelly (a Harry Bosch/Lincoln Lawyer book)
11. "The Smell of Other People's Houses" - Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock - Thanks for the recommendation, trixi!
12. "Maine" - J. Courtney Sullivan - This would make a good beach book. Not dumb, but not heavy.
13. "The Asphalt Warrior" - Gary Reilly - I forget how I found this recommendation, but it's a good one. I thought it would be more of a detective or crime novel. But, it's mainly just the thoughts of the cabbie/philosopher/lover of GILLIGAN'S ISLAND protagonist. I didn't mind spending time in Murph's head.
14. "Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It" - Maile Meloy
15. "We Are Never Meeting in Real Life" - Samantha Irby - I cackled and giggled and snorted. YAY.
16. "The Vinyl Detective: The Run-out Groove" - Andrew Cartmel - I didn't really care for the mystery but I liked spending more time with the core group of main characters, including the kitty cats.
17. "American Street" - Ibi Zoboi
18. "Do Not Become Alarmed" - Maile Meloy - I may never travel internationally again.
19. "The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl" - Issa Rae (audiobook)
20. "The Late Show" - Michael Connelly - A nice introduction to Connelly's newest detective. And she's a lady!
21. "Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore" - Robin Sloan - That was a little like Willy Wonka if books were candy.
22. "The Identicals" - Elin Hilderbrand - Soapy beach read devoured at a cubicle during a couple of lunches/on the treadmill walking off those lunches.
23. "Worn Stories" - Emily Spivack - A collection of "sartorial memoirs".
24. "Before the Fall" - Noah Hawley - Hey! Noah Hawley writes books!

40. Tell-All - Chuck Palahniuk
41. Hollywood - Charles Bukowski
42. Modern Classics of Fantasy - Edited by Gardner Dozois
43. Now Is The Hour - Tom Spanbauer

So I was reading an interview with Chuck Palahniuk recently. In it he mentioned how he learned minimalist writing from Spanbauer. I thought, "Well, there's a writer I'd like to check out."

So I did. I had my doubts, though, as I hefted the 450-page volume in the library. Minimalist, eh? We'll see about that.

Immediately, and I do mean immediately, I was sucked in, his writing is that good. Sharp, precise. Nothing is wasted. Repetition for emphasis. Characters that step off the page, sit down, share a cigarette with you. A story that breaks your heart even as you laugh.

Damn, that was a good book.

not that i have a problem or anything, but i wonder if i read any lord of the rings books this would make it better.  or should i just read twilight?
