Charles Bukowski

Iwas a man who thrived on solitude; without it I was like another man withoutfood or water. Each day without solitude weakened me. I took no pride in mysolitude; but I was dependent on it. The darkness of the room was like sunlightto me. — Charles Bukowski, Factotum. (Ecco May 31, 2002) Originallypublished 1975.
