Quotes from the Charles Bukowski book “Portions From A Wine-Stained Notebook”
Most readers either love or detest Charles Bukowski, the poet and novelist infamous for his prodigious, worldly appetites. Many often confuse him with the persona he presented in his work: hard-drinking, violent, cruel.

He has been accused of being a misogynist and a bad writer. It hums with a life that much poetry and prose lacks.
