5.0 out of 5 stars Fearless, whiskey-sodden and damned brilliant, 7 Dec. 2011

There is a famous Leonard Cohen quote concerning Bukowski: ' He brought everybody down to Earth, even the angels.' This is as concise a summation of his genius as one can hope to come across. Bukowski deals mainly in bringing colour and menace to the mundane surfaces of contemporary urban existence, but he also brings humanity and hope to scenes of desolation and poverty, such as in the urgent individualism of 'no leaders, please' and the touching vulnerability of later poems such as 'cancer' and 'so now?'. Charles Bukowski is undoubtedly a poet of flare, imagination and great personality - eschewing formal conventions and manners, this is a treasure trove of inspiring, melancholy, uplifting, bitingly realistic and always fantastic poetry. If you have an interest in poetry, buy this book. If you don't, buy this book.
