FUCK YOU! Charles Bukowski was the greatest novelist ever, the only one who didnt need to boost his ego by using big words while people who read other poets jerk off over the fact that they are able to understand those big words, he connects with the reader on a much deeper more human level. He writes stories he actually experienced and not some stupid fictionary shit while still being humorous and down to earth.
Fuck you your opinion is wrong and I am right.
I know he's basically "babby's first literature," but I personally love Hemingway. And if you've read A Farewell to Arms and The Sun Also Rises, you'll see he's effay as fuck.
>living in Paris going to parties and getting drunk
>going to Pamplona to see the running of the bulls and fly fishing
>all that self loathing
>expatriate living in Italy
>spending time with qts
>running away from the war
Well, either him or Camus in my opinion.
Some of us do
very good candidate
Bukowski is alright in that "idgaf" kind of attitude, have you seen "Barfly?"
Haven't read anything by him except in lit class, so I can't speak to that. Need to get on it though.
Another solid candidate, really any of the Beatniks, imo.
All of Modernism is pretty /fa/
Not necessarily "good," but more like a lifestyle and swagger about the writer themself and their content (thought literary fiction is normally character-driven, not plot-driven).
i'd say Haruki Murakami is pretty /fa/, but not anywhere near the best writers and close to mediocre
i still enjoy some of his novels though, Sputnik Sweetheart probably being my favorite
Hemingway is the most /fa/ novelist
James Joyce is cool too, just in a different way
>inb4 Ulysses, so avant-garde! :^)
my favorite writer of all time, nabokov, was a prissy, upper-class elitist with a silly voice so I would say he is not particularly fashionable
I would probably say pushkin or something for most /fa/ but rimbaud is an excellent candidate as well
If your answer is anything other than Ernest Hemingway, you're wrong. He is a force of Man.
Oh, and, F Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda were pretty /fa/ in their time.
Strong contemporary candidate: Rachel Kushner.
I don't remember Bukowski being as bad as people make him out to be, but then I hardly remember him.
Either way: oh, wow, another /fa/ novelist related.
Isn't the OP asking which literary pursuit is more /fa/ and not which individual poet or novelist is most /fa/?
>/fa/ in charge of reading comprehension
>still shit up a thread with irrelevant opinions when none of them can read
>He writes stories he actually experienced and not some stupid fictionary shit while still being humorous and down to earth.
While I get what you are saying, I don't think Buko ever worked as a mail man and raped a woman for not signing for a package.
When I have fears that I may cease to be
Before my pen has glean’d my teeming brain,
Before high piled books, in charact’ry,
Hold like rich garners the full-ripen’d grain;
When I behold, upon the night’s starr’d face,
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,
And think that I may never live to trace
Their shadows, with the magic hand of chance;
And when I feel, fair creature of an hour!
That I shall never look upon thee more,
Never have relish in the faery power
Of unreflecting love! - then on the shore
Of the wide world I stand alone, and think
Till Love and Fame to nothingness do sink
