what have you read lately?
This week, I'm reading Bukowski's posthumous 'Sifting Through the Madness for the Word, the Line, the Way', which has some good poems, but overall isn't his best work.
Though it is the best available, recently-published, previously-unpublished writing you can get from any dead beat writer. You should at least pick it up in the store and read the first poem, titled 'so you want to be a writer?'
I also just finished a book called Raven's End. I was disappointed with one weak link in the plot and the ending seemed somewhat weak, but I am a harsh judge of book endings. The writing in it was excellent, and the story was mostly very strong.
Anyway, I'm looking for something new to read. Anyone have any suggestions?
