Buk goes to Europe circa 1979. Michael Montfort took the (b&w) photographs. It may not sound like much but it's really quite thrilling. You can almost smell the great man's breath. 10.5x8.5". (RC) Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Meet the Author

Charles Bukowski is one of America’s best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of two. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for over fifty years. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.
