Watch An Animated Charles Bukowski Talk About Writing and Death

"I'm such a spoiled old toad," says writer, postman, and appreciator of all things alcoholic Charles Bukowski.

Still great. He's been been dead 20 years, but a collection of audio outtakes from a recording session for his classic Run With the Hunted was recently released, producing the following musings that have been brought to life by animator Drew Christie for HarperCollins.

It's a refreshingly candid version of Bukowski that most people can't find by going through his old book. He talks about writing, the post office, and—of course—death. 

Jeremy Glass is the Vice editor for Supercompressor and his favorite Bukowski book is the one where he drinks a lot.
