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

15 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 367 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 Abel Debritto draws on archives, privately held, unpublished work, and interviews to shed new light on the ways in which Bukowski became an icon in the alternative literary scene in the 1960s."--Publisher website

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Storm for the living and the dead : uncollected and unpublished poems by Charles Bukowski( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 271 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"--Amazon.com
Essential Bukowski : poetry by Charles Bukowski( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 264 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
