Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fourth of five new books of unpublished poems from the late, great, Charles Bukowski, America's most imitated and influential poet.

Recent features in The New Yorker and on NPR's "Morning Edition" have proven that interest in Bukowski and his works is ever present.

Charles Bukowski is considered the original.

Praise for Bukowski:

"Wordsworth, Whitman, William Carlos Williams and The Beats in their respective generations moved poetry toward a more natural language. Bukowski moved it a little farther." –– LA Times Book Review, 1994

Synopsis:

learning the ropes

he was my guru.

he was a big man, bearded, self-assured.

he sat in one chair.

I sat in another.

we had been up together many days

and nights.

there had been an hour's heavy

silence.

then he leaned forward slightly

and whispered,

"you don't have to worry about

worms when you die, Chinaski,

worms don't infest dead

bodies, it's a fairy tale."

"that's good to know," I

said.

then we fell into another

hour's heavy

silence.

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 poet. He was born in Andernach, Germany, and brought to the United States at the age of three. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for fifty years. He published his first story in 1944, when he was twenty-four, and began writing poetry when he was thirty-five. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three. During his lifetime he published over forty-five books of poetry and prose—many translated into more than a dozen languages. His worldwide popularity remains undiminished, and Ecco is proud to publish the five posthumous collections of his work (this volume is the fifth and final) in addition to a new selection of his later works, The Pleasures of the Damned.
