Now Reading: Bukowski

Post Office.: A Novel & Notes of a Dirty Old Man.

From Wikipedia: Bukowski died of leukemia on March 9th, 1994 in San Pedro, California, at the age of 73, shortly after completing the novel “Pulp”, his last. His funeral rites were conducted by Buddhist monks. His gravestone reads: “Don’t Try”. According to Linda Lee Bukowski, her husband’s epitaph means something along the lines of “If you spend all your time trying, then all you’re doing is trying. So don’t try. Just do.” (is this where the got the “Just do it” from ?)

At Amazon:
Post Office
Dirty Old Man

Both Books are well worth reading, a bit overrated in my humble opinion. They are more to entertain and to please the simple mind, then anything else.
