"Bukowski was writing before the rise of MFA programs in creative writing. He recalls: 'Somebody asked me, "Bukowski, if you taught a course in writing what would you ask them to do?" I answered "I'd send them to the racetrack and force them to bet $5 on each race." This ass thought I was joking.' There was ever a touch of wild-man bravado with Bukowski. But some might judge it a better suggestion than being told to wrtie what you know in a seminar room on a provincial campus."––James Campbell
