"He loads his head full of coal and diamonds shoot out of his finger tips. What a trick. The mole genius has left us with another digest. It's a full house--read 'em and weep."--Tom Waits After toiling in obscurity for years, Charles Bukowski suddenly found fame in 1967 with his autobiographical newspaper column, "Notes of a Dirty Old Man," and a book of that name in 1969. He continued writing this column, in one form or another, through the mid-1980s.More Notes of a Dirty Old Man gathers many uncollected gems from the column's twenty-year run. Drawn from ephemeral underground publications, these stories and essays haven't been seen in decades, makingMore a valuable addition to Bukowski's oeuvre. Filled with his usual obsessions--sex, booze, gambling--More features Bukowski's offbeat insights into politics and literature, his tortured, violent relationships with women, and his lurid escapades on the poetry reading circuit. Highlighting his versatility, the book ranges from thinly veiled autobiography to purely fictional tales of dysfunctional suburbanites, disgraced politicians, and down-and-out sports promoters, climaxing with a long, hilarious adventure among French filmmakers, "My Friend the Gambler," based on his experiences making the movieBarfly. From his lowly days at the post office through his later literary fame,More follows the entire arc of Bukowski's colorful career. Edited by Bukowski scholar David Stephen Calonne,More Notes of a Dirty Old Man features an afterword outlining the history of the column and its effect on the author's creative development. Born in Andernach, Germany in 1920,Charles Bukowski came to California at age three and spent most of his life in Los Angeles. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994.… (mere)

This is the second collection of Bukowski’s columns that appeared in the Los Angeles Free Press, High Times and other publications from the late 1960s to early 1980s. The columns are diverse, ranging from fiction to essays, and cover his favorite topics – sex, women, love (it’s good for other people), drinking, gambling, writing and the general pain of living in the world. Each column is entertaining and most have something to say.

Bukowski rails against – among other things - the tedium of mindless work, the relentless commercialization of society and how man is “slugged with ready-made commercial contrivances until he becomes another faceless and unfeeling creature.” He decries how people are isolated from one another, but also claims to not like other people all that much. “The best people are the ones you never meet.”

Some other notable quotes:
“There are so many stupid things to do that there isn’t any time left to do anything that isn’t stupid.”
“It’s best to screw in the dark if you can’t go grade A.” ( )
  Hagelstein | Sep 27, 2014 |
Bukowski's loyal fans will relish the opportunity to peruse these writings in book form. However, readers new to Bukowski might be better directed to his major autobiographical novels, such as Post Office, Women, or Ham on Rye.
