My Stay in the Poet's Cottage Summary

Bukowski stays at the Poet's Cottage one summer at the University of Arizona. It is unbearably hot and Bukowski does not welcome conversation about poetry or writing, so he spends most of his time drinking beer and talking to local waitresses about going back to Los Angeles. On the day that he is due to depart Tucson, the editor at the school meets him at the train station and is shocked that Bukowski walked all the way there from the cottage in the stifling heat. Bukowski replies that he would rather walk than have waited for the bus in a drug store that makes him feel depressed. He boards the train and considers hitting on an insane woman, but does not. He is happy to return home to Los Angeles.
