About This Item

New York:: Ecco Press,, 2004.. First Printing of the First Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. The second volume of poems Bukowski left unpublished when he died does not contain many fights, arguments with women, or eruptions at parties. Most of it seems to have been written very late; indeed, one of its most effective passages consists of poems about his hospitalization during treatment for terminal leukemia, and several other poems look toward death with a calmness that verges on nobility. Oh, he stayed true to his jaundiced, damned-if-you-do/damned-if-you-don't outlook, and his rants against politics, business, and armed authorities.
