Bukowski & Bukowski on reincarnation

I’m reading Bukowski today – not Charles, like back in the day, but Louis Bukowski, “La réincarnation selon les Pères de l’Eglise”, Gregorianum 9 (1928).

Here’s the younger Bukowski on reincarnation: “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.” (London Magazine, 1974)
