Charles Bukowski was one of America's best-known writers abnd one of its most influential and imitated poets. Although he published over 45 books of poetry, hundreds of his poems were kept by him and his publisher for posthumous publication, This is the first collection of these unique poems, which Bukowski considered to be among his best work.
“Wordsworth, Whitman, William Carlos Williams and The Beats in their Respective generations moved poetry toward a more natural language. Buckowski moved it a little farther.”
