However, I think if you linked the actual interview, it would be inappropriate according to HN's content standards: Bukowski uses some very colorful language.
 I was slightly incorrect in my previous post, she wasn't his wife yet at the time of the interview.
Bukowski spent most of his life being Bukowski. Better results than the post-office position. Beats the great, grey middle all to hell.
For us it's great, we get Bukowski. For Bukowski, it seems less enjoyable.
