Awesome collection of short stories

I've read probably 20+ Bukowski books. I enjoy his novels and poetry, but the short story collections have always been hit or miss. I had never read Hot Water Music before, but I figured to get it on Audible and give it a shot. I am very, very impressed with it. The stories are all very short. Most of them involve the types of 'ordinary madness' that Bukowski wrote about so well. I am very pleased I bought this audio and I will listen to again in the future.

Not the best of Buk's stuff

I found a few things somewhat comical, but overall it was incoherent and dull. I struggled to keep interest and one story sounded like the next.
