South of No North is a collection of short stories written by Charles Bukowski that explore loneliness and struggles on the fringes of society.

His impressions of the characters bring to life the personalities I imagined Bukowski wanted for his characters; depraved, base, impulsive, and best of all, unashamed.
There are millions of books for females telling their woes of family struggle and men mistreating them. This genre does not really exist for men. Then there is Bukowski who does nothing but tell it exactly as it is with women and trying to find a little scrap of humanity in a such an inhumane world. I like these stories because some of them cross the boundaries of the surreal. It is not like the other books that are for the most part autobiographical. I think this book made me laugh out loud much more than the other books by Bukowski. The wild west story, I thought was ridiculous at first. But any man who reads that story will say to himself at the end of it, "That's sure how it goes with women." Thank god this is audio! Make more.
