Charles Bukowski (1920-1994) is one of the great scatologists of the 20th century – so much so that it is hard to know which of his writings not to quote from. Those wanting to more about him can do no better than to visit bukowski.net.
There was nothing really as glorious as a good beer shit - I mean after drinking twenty or twenty-five beers the night before. The odor of a beer shit like that spread all around and stayed for a good hour-and-a-half. It made you realize that you were really alive.
