Woman Finds Annotated Bukowski Book, It's Filled With Comedy Gold
Charles Bukowski is one of those authors who's really appealing to college freshmen hellbent on making being miserable their primary personality trait. He's got that Holden Caulfield streak where if you're not in the right mood for the kind of stuff he's slinging you can't help but go "okay man, we get it, holy crap." Even a fan of Bukowski would admit that his view of relationships wasn't exactly what one would call "healthy." Granted, the guy who wrote a book called "Notes of A Dirty Old Man" probably isn't out to appeal to young female readers, but it's still funny to read this Twitter thread from Melissa Turkington about someone else's annotations in a Bukowski book that she purchased second-hand. Whoever did write these notes seemingly couldn't stomach more than ⅔ of its length.
