Have you read Bukowski before? I love his work. As an alcoholic and depressive he defines the possibility of transforming misery into art. I have every book he ever wrote in my home library and I have read each one more than once. His writing is the type where you find something new or experience different feelings by reading again and again.
“The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it- basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them.” — Charles Bukowski
