    Misogyny misogyny misogynythat's all everyone sees Few see the true character of Hank only the brutal sexual descriptions the words beginning with C and his practice of mounting whatever drunken soul may have wandered into his piss stained bed This is one of the most American novels I have ever read It tells the story of the common man overburdened by the memories of his abusive youth beleagured by his own unsightly appearance and wallowing in the depths of alcoholism Few feel the groan of his body when he rises each morning the dull thud in his brain or the unreuited love in his heart This is not a story of a crude womanizer This is the story of pain and consistency his life moving along with each labored step unwillingly It is the story of rejection acceptance and our own inherent ability to survive without really trying They sounded like really nasty women anyway

    I discovered Charles Bukowski while in Las Vegas in December 2000My dad thought it was a good idea to take his 19 year old daughter to Vegas Because I LOVE watching everyone else gamble and drink while I can't participate To be fair we saw some really good shows Blue Man Group and Mystere And the buffets were exciting Paris was wonderfulAnd I did get screamed at by a lady on the bus that goes up and down the strip She looked like Mimi from the Drew Carey show Well she dropped her purse and I being the gentleman that I am went to pick it up for her because she was obviously too large to bend over herself And I didnt want her roly poly blue eyeshadow wearing self to roll down the aisle causing an accidentTo be fair she probably wouldnt have rolled just gotten stuckSo this ass starts screaming at me Don't touch my purse don't steal my purseSo embarassingSo later that dayI bought a really sweet corset and some cute underoos at the Victorias Secret in Vegas At 19 I was at my most attractive Everything has gone downhill since then The ban on ephedra didn't help either I swear a few people die and they go and freakin' ban it People die from cars and alcohol all the time but they dont go banning those Whatever man I miss you Xenedrine Call me please email me if you have any black market ephedra will pay in booksBut the point is I could wear a corset back then and look mildly attractive in the right lighting If you suinted your eyesI do remember trying that get up on in my hotel room and thinking Ooooh sexy lady oh yeah You soooo fineThat was also the last year I considered myself a femaleThat was the first and last time I have ever shopped at Victoria's Secret My friend Erika has to remind to me wear bras to this dayI also bought 2 pieces of cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory and brought them back to my hotel and devoured them bothSo back to the main subject matter here our last day in Vegas we were in some store and there was this book called Drinking Smoking and ScrewingYes yes and yes I thought to myselfDidn't even read the description I just immediately bought itLucky for me it was a collections of short stories from awesome writers about the title subjectsAnd an exerpt of Charles Bukowski's Women was one of themHe stood out to me because he writes like he speaks In plain no frills english Some call him misogynistic but I disagree I never felt like he was exploiting or demeaning women in any of his booksMost of the bitches in his books deserved to be treated like shit Or wanted to be treated like shit Because that's how women are sometimes And that is why I no longer can relate to that gender amoung many other reasonsI guess my connection with Buk lies in heartbreakThat's what he reminds me of That bittersweet feeling of your heart being torn out but still continuing to beat

    The leading crazy lady's name is Lydia I can relate Charles Bukowski has a way of betraying you and making you laugh in spite of yourself; disgusting you and then melting your heart with one tender and insightful paragraph you do not expect at a moment that doesn't seem appropriate in context to that which he is speaking It is impossible to love Bukowski and impossible not to love him This book is just a delight if you can absorb it He is mushy soft at his core

    boooooorrrrrr iinnnnnnnnnnnnnggggI loved Bukowski as a young teenager and now that I go back and re read I can only imagine that I enjoyed the truth and rawness at that age when I was getting lied to everywhere abt the relations between men and women NOW the misogyny is effing boring Like the crap I see every effing day I find it interesting that some people find it so shocking because I know at least 10 men that feel this way abt women OVER IT Don't wanna read abt it now

    This book is CRAZY I cannot believe I read the entire thing in 3 days You can't put it down In fact it made it's rounds through at least 8 people I know of and it's probably still making the rounds Everyone had the same experience You start it and Bukowski goes into the most sexist vulgar repulsive descriptions of the main character's relationship to women but something makes you keep reading I stopped at several points wondering why the hell am I reading this? yet I went on This is a wild feat making this a brilliant work of art The main character is an upper middle aged man He's disgusting and a complete drunk He's also a writer His greatest ambition in life is the fk an 18 year old girl when he's 80 year's old Did I say this was vulgar? It's the worst and best reading you've ever done You'll fly through it never knowing exactly why

    Freaks always attract other freaks – it must be some immutable law of natureI had on my dead father’s overcoat which was too large My pants were too long the cuffs came down over the shoes and that was good because my stockings didn’t match and my shoes were down at the heels I hated barbers so I cut my own hair when I couldn’t get a woman to do it I didn’t like to shave and I didn’t like long beards so I scissored myself every two or three weeks My eyesight was bad but I didn’t like glasses so I didn’t wear them except to read I had my own teeth but not that many My face and my nose were red from drinking and the light hurt my eyes so I suinted through tiny slits I would have fit into any skid row anywhereAloofness drunkenness seclusion Hank Chinaski is a deliberate pariah a lone wolf misogynic and misanthropicI disliked them all immediately sitting around acting clever and superior They nullified each other The worst thing for a writer is to know another writer and worse than that to know a number of other writers Like flies on the same turdWomen come and go an ensemble of women is exotic and bizarre but all of them are thoroughly unhappy Emptiness swallows existence and human comedy is hardly distinguishable from human tragedyI was glad I wasn’t in love that I wasn’t happy with the world I like being at odds with everything People in love often become edgy dangerous They lose their sense of perspective They lose their sense of humor They become nervous psychotic bores They even become killersA curst cur must be tied short

    Probably my least favorite Bukowski novel if only because it is the one most commonly used against him by readers with a college freshmen understanding of what misogyny actually is Anyone who's ever read the man's oeuvre or seen any of his interviews and walked away with the impression that he was anything but an eual opportunity misanthrope might have a slightly skewed view of things If anything he was harder on the men around him and he hated everyone for their greed cruelty and dullness but he only fucked the women so I guess that made him a misogynist

    Reading Women is like watching a porno At first all that wanton sex is exciting and seductive and yeah kind of funny too; then it starts to get repetitive and a little disturbing; pretty soon you're disgusted with all of it sex and women and men and most of all yourself You promise that you'll never watch again but deep down you know you will You dirty bastard

  10. Eileen Eileen says:

    In the words of a reviewer on First off this book will offend people It will probably offend you This book hit a little too close to home you could say I've met and loved this man in real life At first reading it was easy; the language is not complex and the material is the definition of page turner sex love drugs alcohol in raw unapologetic realism And then around page 200 it all became too much Chinaski does another poetry reading beds and then rapes though strangely enough he does not call this what it is a new woman half his age breaks another woman's heart and drinks drinks drinks I decided to finish the book because I was than 23 along the way and I'm glad I did Chinaski has a breakthrough eventually and it is heartbreaking no matter how much you may have grown to despise him Whether he'll learn or not who's to say? But then again that's life right there And Bukowski's prose if nothing else tells it like it is whether you want to read it or not
