notes of a dirty old man

'One day after the races, I saw down and wrote the heading Notes of a Dirty Old Man, opened a beer, and the writing got done by itself...Just sit by the window, lift the beer, and let it come. Anything that wanted to arrive, arrived.'

I've been meaning to read Charles Bukowski for a while, his style of grimy street realism, and focus on America's lowlife, it's losers, antiheroes, women, gambling, booze and violence attracts me. Now I have Notes of a Dirty Old Man, I hope to not be dissapointed.
