I finished reading a book by Charles Bukowski* which was supposed to be about his thoughts on writing. What it turned out to be was a collection of stories, letters, and book forwards over the years that are tangentially related to writing.
I enjoyed the book overall but I think that only a Bukowski fan would really appreciate it.
My biggest takeaway from the book is that if I want to be more like Bukowski then I should listen to classical music and drink more wine.
