In The Mathematics of the Breath and the Way, Charles Bukowski considers
the art of writing, and the art of living as writer. Bringing together a
variety of previously uncollected stories, columns, reviews, introductions,
and interviews, this book finds him approaching the dynamics of his chosen
profession with cynical aplomb, deflating pretentions and tearing down
idols armed with only a typewriter and a bottle of beer.From numerous tales
of the author's adventures at poetry readings, parties, film sets, and
bars, to an unprecedented gathering of Bukowski's singular literary
criticism, the author discusses his writing practices and his influences.
The Mathematics of the Breath and the Way is a perfect guide to the man
behind the myth and the disciplined artist behind the boozing brawler.
