"Edson’s vivid portrayal of the urban area, as well as the working class and underclass, creates a vision of Saint John that highlights the discrepancy between the pre-modern idyllic notion of life in Atlantic Canada and the more complicated reality of the region."

Charles Bukowski collides with Ernest Hemingway

Charles Bukowski is one of my favorite writers. He is crude and simple and fun. He was also a Hemingway fan. This story is clearly his take on one of Hemingway's most famous short stories, The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber. (Be warned, it's quite crude. But fun.)
