I was kind of dating this weird guy in college and he was super into Bukowski. The first book I read was "Ham on Rye", a kind of memoir about his early childhood and teenage years. Then I started picking up his poetry and short stories. I have been a devoted fan ever since.

I forgot where I ran across Charles. I can't stand most poets. They seem to want to obscure the meaning of their poems. Not Charles. Brutally honest. It was like nothing I had ever read. A literary hero.
