Good Gifts To Give

Everybody needs some Bukowski in their life. For those who rely on his perspective and sense of beauty, his astonishing industry has meant an enormous amount of posthumous publications.

This new volume of previously uncollected and unpublished poems—many of them appeared decades ago in the mimeographed poetry magazines, how’s that for analog?—is typical of these in one sense: it’s a mixed bag of good and not so good writing.

What makes this book special is that the good writing is some of the best I’ve read from Bukowski, wonderful in spirit and in line. This joins the ranks of his finest books of poems, like Love is a Dog From Hell and Septuagenarian Stew.

And while you’re in the giving mood, please contribute to the Big City Kickstarter campaign. I still need your help, and the campaign is open through December 7. Become a subscriber now for some cool schwag!
