Charles Bukowski could have been just another hard-drinking, hard-living echo-of-Hemmingway cliché, but he wasn't. His voice was his own and he was often very, very funny. No, really. See 'How I Got Started' and the like to discover just how good his humour was.

This is an excellent collection of this early 80s work, a good, chunky selection of a particularly good period... It's also a stylishly designed and well printed volume.

Poets suffer more than most from comparisons with their peers, and so I shall spare CB further such irrelevancies.

Just be aware that you may find this volume so good that have to buy further volumes to satisfy yourself.

CB wrote a LOT of poetry...

If you have not read bukowski you have not read the truth of perspective.Brace yourself, you will be in for one hell of a ride. I have never seen pain in such a beautiful, stark, and up-front manner as this man was able to communicate. it makes you want to bleed ink.

A charecter picks up a copy of War All the Time and thumbs through it in a fairly conspicuous way about half-way through the movie. The director must be a Buk fan!
Cool!
By the way, this is a great collection of Bukowski's poetry. . .
