Charles Bukowski / Post Office
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/ec/Post_Office_%28Charles_Bukowski_novel_-_front_cover%29.jpg

(the afterword for the post office was by a swedish author, journalist and feminist. she starts to complain about this and that. that all her boyfriends have read bukovski, some even refer to him as buk. along with bukowski they used read burroughs, ginsberg, ferlinghetti, kerouac, céline, hammett and genet. damn girl, i see you haven't been dating any ordinary working-class boys (call me prejudiced). (in sweden the privileged cultural left-wing aristocracy lives in ivory towers from where they rarely venture out).

then she states that that together with the fact that men only reads male authors while girls are taught from childhood to read more diverse didn't make her especially interested in reading bukowski. do guys only read male authors? is that a fact? i had feminist girlfriend once who stated the same as a fact.

while i read the post office i was visiting the area where i grew up. a area with some problems, not the worst by far but the compulsory car burnings, kids with adidas pants, pitbulls, some crime and so on. cant help to think that if these boys where reading books a lot of the problems would go away. if they read bukowski, burroughs, ginsberg, ferlinghetti, kerouac, céline, hammett and genet, they might not (for examlpe) have time to poor gasoline down the garbage disposal. anyway...)

have to say i agree with cebtec, really, really good stuff...
in just some lines bukowski can paint a scene.

It's a graphic novel that comes in a box format full of posters, leaflets etc. All of the stuff in the picture. Highly recommended! smile
