I'm reading "Women" by Charles Bukowski.
We were reading a lot of Charles Bukowski for my Writer's Craft lclass last year. Not really my style, but interesting nonetheless.

I just finished reading Elegance by Kathleen Tessaro. Quite funny and cute and some good tips.
It's a bit of a fun read, isn't it? I have a first edition of the book on which this book is based on. I inherited it actually. [/b][/quote]
How is it? Apparently she changed a couple of bits for the novel.

I just finished Memoirs of a Geisha, which was sad, but quite educational and a satisfying read. Next up is Imperial Woman by Pearl Buck, which is coincidentally about China's great female Empress.

When I brought the book I did'nt know what it was about. He wrote with so much detail during the sex, I put the book down for a few days. i realized that he is'nt really my style as well, but I can'nt return the book, so I might as well finsh it. But thw women in the book are intersting.

Yes, his writing is very straightforward and often coarse. We were reading Factotum in our class, by the way, as well as some of his poetry.

i used to read lots of Bukowski including Women and Factotum, but i never imagined he was going to be teached in American schools one day (neither did he.. i'm positive )

currently reading "goodbye tsugumi" by my fave contemporary Japanese writer Banana Yoshimoto
