Published 1978 by Harper Collins, Women is written by the undisputed king of deviant weirdo authors himself. Although, one might sat if you've read one Bukowski... This book is a semi-autobiographical account of the author's alcoholic behavior, his over-sexed personality and his utter I Don't Give A God Damn About Anything mantra. There really is no plot, per se, but in the meantime, Chinaski, as he calls himslef backs into a modest success as an underground literary figure on college campuses. He goes from working in the mail room and drinking all night to abusing a the crowd at a reading and drinking all night. My anti-hero.

I've been reading some Bukowski lately. According to his wikipedia article he was physically abused growing up. "The Recess Bells of School" is particularly poignant to me.
