Review: The Captain is Out to Lunch and the Sailors Have Taken Over the Ship

The Captain is Out to Lunch and the Sailors Have Taken Over the Ship The Captain is Out to Lunch and the Sailors Have Taken Over the Ship by Charles Bukowski
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sour, funny, with gems of observations about writers and writing. I laughed (yes, out loud) at his accounts of his cats and his excursions to the racetrack. Here is someone who notes that his writing has changed, drawing from "the power of age" and no long from the power of youth. Plus the illustrations by R. Crumb are great.
