Of common people be they bums priests grape pickers gas station attendants office workers or anonymous girls picked up on the street though to women the author could as he admitted be as misogynous as he was affectionate Bitter and incisive This Business of Living is both moving and painful to read and stands with James Joyce’s Letters and Andre Gide’s Journals as one of the great literary testaments of the twentieth centu.
