Charles Bukowski-Women

´If I had been born a woman I would certainly have been a prostitute. Since I had been born a man, I craved women constantly, the lower the better.

Low life Writer and alcoholic Henry Chinaski was born to survive. Now, at the age of fifty, he is living the life of a rock star, running three hundred hangovers a year and a sex life that would cripple Casanova.
Women is a riotous and uncompromisingly vivid account of the life edge.

Charles Bukowski ( August 16,1920 - March 9,1994) was a German-American poet, novelist and short story writer. His writing was influenced by the social, cultural and economic ambience of his home city Los Angeles. It is marked by an emphasis on the ordinary lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationship with women and the drudgery of work.
Bukowski wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels, eventually having over 60 books print. In 1986 Time called Bukowski a "laureate of American lowlife". (via Wikipedia)
