Charles Bukowski, king of the underground : from obscurity to literary icon by Abel Debritto( Book )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Bukowski was a product of the small press movement, an unparalleled phenomenon in the so-called little magazines that proliferated in the United States during the 60s. His long journey through the 'littles' and the small presses was finally rewarded after bitter battles in the back alleys of the American literary scene. This critical study offers a comprehensive picture of the literary magazines, underground newspapers, and small press publications that had an impact on Charles Bukowski's early career. Abel Debritto draws on archives, privately held, unpublished work, and interviews to shed new light on the ways in which Bukowski became an icon in the alternative literary scene in the 1960s"--Provided by publisher
On cats by Charles Bukowski( Book )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Felines touched a vulnerable spot in Charles Bukowski's crusty soul. For the writer, there was something majestic and elemental about these inscrutable creatures he admired, sentient beings whose searing gaze could penetrate deep into our being. On Cats offers Bukowski's musings on these beloved animals and the toughness and resiliency."--Jacket
On drinking by Charles Bukowski( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The definitive collection of works on a subject that inspired and haunted Charles Bukowski for his entire life: alcohol. Charles Bukowski turns to the bottle in this revelatory collection of poetry and prose that includes some of the writer's best and most lasting work. A self-proclaimed "dirty old man," Bukowski used alcohol as muse and as fuel, a conflicted relationship responsible for some of his darkest moments as well as some of his most joyful and inspired. In On Drinking, Bukowski expert Abel Debritto has collected the writer's most profound, funny, and memorable work on his ups and downs with the hard stuff--a topic that allowed Bukowski to explore some of life's most pressing questions. Through drink, Bukowski is able to be alone, to be with people, to be a poet, a lover, and a friend--though often at great cost. As Bukowski writes in a poem simply titled "Drinking," "for me/it was or/is/a manner of/dying/with boots on/and gun/smoking and a/symphony music background." On Drinking is a powerful testament to the pleasures and miseries of a life in drink, and a window into the soul of one of our most beloved and enduring writers."--Jacket flap

17 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and Spanish and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Storm for the living and the dead : uncollected and unpublished poems by Charles Bukowski( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Bukowski was a prolific writer who produced countless short stories, novels, and poems that have reached beyond their time and place to speak to generations of readers all over the world. Many of his poems remain little known, material that appeared in small magazines but was never collected, and a large number of them have yet to be published. In Storm for the Living and the Dead, Abel Debritto has curated the very finest of this material--poems from obscure, hard-to-find magazines, as well as from libraries and private collections all over the country's most of which will be new to Bukowski's readers and some of which has never been seen before. In doing so, Debritto has captured the essence of Bukowski's inimitable poetic style--tough and hilarious but ringing with humanity. Storm for the Living and the Dead is a gift for any devotee of the Dirty Old Man of American letters"
Essential Bukowski : poetry by Charles Bukowski( Book )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

POETRY BY INDIVIDUAL POETS. Edited by Abel Debritto, the definitive collection of poems from an influential writer whose transgressive legacy and raw, funny, and acutely observant writing has left an enduring mark on modern culture. Few writers have so brilliantly and poignantly conjured the desperation and absurdity of ordinary life as Charles Bukowski. Resonant with his powerful, perceptive voice, his visceral, hilarious, and transcendent poetry speaks to us as forcefully today as when it was written. Encompassing a wide range of subjects-from love to death and sex to writing-Bukowski's unvarnished and self-deprecating verse illuminates the deepest and most enduring concerns of the human condition while remaining sharply aware of the day to day. With his acute eye for the ridiculous and the troubled, Bukowski speaks to the deepest longings and strangest predilections of the human experience. Gloomy yet hopeful, this is tough, unrelenting poetry touched by grace
