Staff Reviews

"This particular collection includes my very favorite of Bukowski's poems, the beautiful, complex "The Bluebird," (which I am physically unable to read without tearing up) along with so many other wonderful arrangements of words I couldn't name them all. I've always loved Hank Chinaski and his gritty, rough words with beautiful shining moments buried in them." - Emily    <<<Page 4 

— From The BookPeople 100 (Page 5)


Poems deal with writing, death and immortality, literature, city life, illness, war, and the past.

About the Author

Charles Bukowski is one of America s best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of two. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for over fifty years. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.
