South of No North - Charles Bukowski

This picture was taken in Amsterdam, November 2008.

Bukowski was a German American poet, novelist and short story writer.
This book is a collection of short stories, first published in 1973 as South of No North: Stories of the Buried Life.

Some of Bukowski's writings were adapted to the cinema. Among those Barfly, from 1987, for which he wrote the screenplay, and Factotum, 2005, adapted from his novel of the same name.

"To do things, to be part of family picnics, Christmas, the 4th of July, Labor Day, Mother's Day . . . was a man born just to endure those things and then die? I would rather be a dishwasher, return alone to a tiny room and drink myself to sleep."
