Bukowski in a Sundress

I have previously speculated on these pages that anyone who says that they like the poetry of Kim Addonizio, but not that of Charles Bukowski (or vice versa) may well be, at the very least, labouring under a certain amount of sexist hypocrisy, the kind that perhaps leads to an indulgence in objectification.

I therefore laughed out loud to find that Kim has just written a memoir entitled “Bukowski in a Sundress”.


The title apparently comes from a review by a critical critic, but nevertheless she gets the joke (“why not Walt Whitman in a sparkly tutu?”).

Can’t wait to read it.
