"Genius could be the ability to say a profound thing in a simple way, or even to say a simple thing in a simpler way."—Charles Bukowski
Bringing together a variety of previously uncollected stories, columns, reviews, introductions, and interviews, Mathematics finds Bukowski approaching the dynamics of his chosen profession with cynical aplomb, deflating pretensions and tearing down idols armed with only a typewriter and a bottle of beer.
