All forms of madness, bizarre habits, awkwardness in society, general clumsiness, are justified in the person who creates good art."
-Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy
I think that's true to a large extent. Bukowski was quite the misogynist. In one of his stories he writes about hitting his lover and breaking her false teeth. He then tries to fix her dentures with glue.

And who is Roman Payne? He's a modern-day Hemingway or Kerouac. Take a look at a his photo. Doesn't his hair remind you of Kerouac? Roman traveled around the US for a few years writing, sold some of his work, and then decided he was moving to France. He's been living and writing in France since 1999.
