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.

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
