About this title


Traces the life of the controversial American poet, describes his experiences wandering across the country, and discusses his major writings

From Library Journal:

With Charles Bukowski, as with many autobiographical writers, one gets curious to see what his life was really like and how the stories and poems relate to it chronologically. In this case the question is also, "Does Bukowski live up to the myth surrounding him?" Addressing this question in his biography, Cherkovski reproduces many favorite poems and little fragments of prose and then analyzes them insightfully in relation to the writer's life. Cherkovski was a good friend of Bukowski during the late Sixties, and his tales of their exploits together will make the average Bukowski idolator jealous. After all, what fan wouldn't want to join with the big man himself in editing a magazine called Laugh Literary and Man the Humping Guns and even get to pour beer and egg whites all over the manuscripts intended for rejection? Cherkovski's style is a bit repetitious, but his compassion and respect for his subject are almost heartwarmingly ever-present. He gives fans and nonfans alike another, if not totally different, picture of the great Bukowski.
