However, there's still the same old dosage of smut, filth and complete degeneracy and perverseness throughout which will satisfy any Bukowski fan.

according to my figures I’ve only had 2500 pieces of ass but I’ve watched 12,500 horse races, and if I have any advice to anybody it’s this: take up watercolor painting.

This collection of Bukowski’s columns for an underground LA newspaper epitomises his style of gritty realism. Almost all of the "Notes of a Dirty Old Man" columns have been collected by City Lights Books: Notes of a Dirty Old Man (1969), Erections, Ejaculations and General Tales of Ordinary Madness (1972), Tales of Ordinary Madness (1983), The Most Beautiful Woman in Town and Other Stories (1983), Portions from a Wine-Stained Notebook (2008), Absence of the Hero (2010), More Notes of a Dirty Old Man (2011), The Bell Tolls for No One (2015), and The Mathematics of the Breath and the Way (2018).

This is a POSSIBLE life, he seems to say to me, this is a life I've lived and lived it the way I wanted -at least the way I saw fit for a man in my position: ugly, poor, abused, disenfranchised.His writing was influenced by the social, cultural and economic ambience of his home city of Los Angeles. And not even because it was nasty or creepy (because let's face it, despite panic attacks and crap, I made it through Brett Easton Ellis' American Psycho and if I can get through that, I think I can get through any book). Notes Of A Dirty Old Man is a compilation of columns and short stories that have been collected from Bukowski's early days when he was writing for Open City which was a free, leftist leaning magazine which had a politicalised agenda. It is marked by an emphasis on the ordinary lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationships with women and the drudgery of work.
