I wrote letters to many in those days ...it was rather my way of screaming from my cage.' The 1960's saw Charles Bukowski struggle for recognition and slowly emerge as a unique, talented and prolific poet and writer, whilst holding down a day job at the Post Office. In Selected Letters: Volume 2 we see Bukowski becoming accustomed to his career as a professional writer. These letters to various friends, lovers and literary contacts provide an intimate and fascinating look at Bukowski's mind, his emotions, his attitude towards his own creativity and the comings and goings of his daily life.

About the Author:

Charles Bukowski was one of America's best-known writers and one of its most influential and imitated poets. His writing reflects his slum upbringing, his succession of menial jobs and his experience of life as a struggling writer in low-life urban America. He died in 1994 and is widely acknowledged as one of the most distinctive writers of the last fifty years.

Review:

"'Bukowski carved out a unique position in American letters. He was a cult figure who disdained movements and followers, a working-class autodidact who dared to take himself seriously as a writer but who couldn't stop mocking himself as a subject.' New York Times Book Review."
