I loved this book See a lot of eh reviews Have no idea if it s my own involvement in film, writing and Los Angeles of the past that makes this tale a spark of real life I believe it s the writing alone that does it.This is Bukowski as Bukowski, not Hank Hollywood was and still is a pleasure to read A must have for any screen writer, rags to riches bum, alcoholic literary being, or the real reason to read Buk or Fante the Clean Line.It s the story of Barfly a Bukowski book and the making of that film It starred Mickey O Rourke Bukowski had such a wonderful time seeing the project through and it shows in this work It is a peek into the real life of an icon.Seems readers either love him or hate him I met him in a bar, in Long Beach in the very early 80 s, and thought that he was a consummate asshole.Based on a personal experience I refused to read any of his work and filled myself with righteous indignation.What an ass Me Not Buk.The man could write.Hollywood is a personal story, filled with the real feelings and observations of an author finally revered for their work Finally taken seriously Finally able to let his personal side and thoughts of his life come out It is quite different than any of his other writings Well, so was Pulp Pulp however was pretty damned bad Bukowski.Hollywood Dig it babies.
