Author(s): BUKOWSKI CHARLES
Charles Bukowski was one of America's best-known writers and one of its most influential and imitated poets. His slum upbringing, his succession of menial jobs and his experience of gritty urban America are all reflected in his Beat Generation writing and poetry, for which he became a cult figure.
Although in his lifetime Bukowski published over 45 books of poetry, hundreds of his poems were reserved for publication after his death. Following on from the success of three previous volumes, this fourth collection of these unique and previously unpublished poems, which Bukowski considered to be among his finest work, is essential for all readers and collectors of one of the most distinctive writers of recent years.
