Charles Bukowski was one of the most colorful personalities of the twentieth century. He was also a lifelong sufferer of depression and alcoholism. Here he is, talking about how he coped with depression. We all have our ways, healthy and unhealthy. It can be helpful to hear how others get through difficult times, even if only to learn how NOT to cope! So, we don’t endorse Bukowski’s ideas, per se, but he’s an interesting voice. Viewer discretion advised: Bukowski, being colorful, uses colorful language.
