Life Magazine is running an interesting retrospective on Famous Literary Drunks and Addicts.
My favorite quote out of the collection comes from Charles Bukowski -
“I have the feeling that drinking is a form of suicide where you're allowed to return to life and begin all over the next day. It's like killing yourself, and then you're reborn. I guess I've lived about ten or fifteen thousand lives now."
The whole life article is pretty good, so go check it out….and yes Randy, Hemmingway is in there.
