The World of Alice D.

I'm here to express my deep love for literature through

reviews, pictures and everything else that comes to my mind while drinking coffee. Cheers.

P.S. I won't be adding books I read before 2010.

My Tumblr:


Women - Charles Bukowski

Read in 2012  (from August 15 to 18)


It took me a while to see if I liked the book or not. I did not initially liked the writing style. He seemed arid and vulgar. On the other hand, I see a lot of truth in it. Bukowski describes 'his' life as it is, without false embellishment.


He skillfully mixes humor into tragedy and creates enjoyment for the reader. He plants his wisdom on every page so many of his book are life lessons. He finds beauty in people from the margins drunks, whores etc. and describes them with a tender emotion.


The aesthetics of ugliness...
