"“You stank, you ran with sweat jamming it into the sacks”"

Bukowski was notoriously hygienic, enjoying up to four baths a day. Something very different to his image as a 'dirty old man'. In his own words - “Nothing is worse than to finish a good shit, then reach over and find the toilet paper container empty. Even the most horrible human being on earth deserves to wipe his ass.” —Factotum, Black Sparrow Press, 1975.
