i don't think so

Posted to WritersAndGenres

I'm not a Bukowski freak like some of my friends, but I do know he was a writer who described his own worst faults very openly. His books are highly self-loathing, mostly for comic effect. So, if what you say is true, I don't think this nullifies his literary vision -- his literary vision includes these characteristics.
