Bukowski in Pictures is the first pictorial biography of Bukowski, telling the story of his life with approximately two hundred photographs, both colour and black and white, most of which are published here for the first time. Friends of Bukowski, members of his family, and former lovers have contributed candid photographs. There are powerful new portraits by leading photographers such as Gottfried Helnwein, former Rolling Stone art director Tony Lane, and Andy Warhol's former assistant, Gerard Malanga. Artists Dave Geiser and R. Crumb have provided illustrations. Extracts from personal letters and rare documents, including Bukowski's recently declassified FBI file, offer new insights that delve behind the public personae.
Biographer Howard Sounes - author of Charles Bukowski: Locked in the Arms of a Crazy Life - has edited and introduced Bukowski in Pictures, weaving new research and quotations from Bukowski's work into introductory essays and extensive photo captions.

Review:

This biography is an affectionate and thorough introduction that will not be rivalled for some time. Its effect is to revitalise rather than reduce Bukowski's work: poems and stories that help keep people alive. * * The Independent * * Brings to life the novels, stories and poems of one of the last cetury's greatest and most controversial writers. * * Dazed and Confused * * a vast and fascinating array of photographs ... The resulting collection acts as a comprehensive pictorial record of a unique talent. * * The Lastest * *
