Editorial Reviews

Gale Research
"Low-life bard of Los Angeles, Mr. Bukowski has nothing new for us here," observes Peter Schjeldahl in the New York Times Book Review, "simply more and still more accounts in free verse of his follies with alcohol and women and of fellow losers hitting bottom and somehow discovering new ways to continue falling." Despite the subject matter, though, Schjeldahl finds himself enjoying the poems in Dangling in the Tournefortia. "Bukowski writes well," he continues, "with ear-pleasing cadences, wit and perfect clarity, which are all the more beguiling for issuing from a stumblebum persona. His grace with words gives a comic gleam to even his meanest revelations."
