"Charles Bukowski was a bard of the barroom and the brothel, a direct descendant of the Romantic visionaries who worshiped at the altar of personal excess, violence and madness… Bukowski's skeletal, self-referential poems and stories, barren of metaphor but crackling with hard truth told in American barroom vernacular, brought him adulation… [that] came late… Flower, Fist and Bestial Wail, his first poetry collection, was published in 1959, and over the years at least 40 more books followed, all of them rooted in the experiences of a loner and outcast with a keen eye for the absurd" (New York Times). Images include shots of Bukowski at the racing track, in Germany and on the set of Barfly, the 1987 movie he wrote the screenplay for.

Fine condition.
