Sifting Through the Madness for the Word, the Line, the Way: New Poems.
by Bukowski, Charles.

Publisher Information:
Ecco Press, New York: 2003.

A Fine copy in illustrated boards without jacket as issued. The poems in this posthumous collection are all as autobiographical as their not-Bukowski "I" referent, Buk's perpetual stand-in--drinkin', screwin', horse-playin', typin' Henry Chinaski-- allows. As usual, they are chock-full of gripes, curses, petty rebellions, cocked snooks, long-suffering mutterings, Pyrrhic victories, and the other expressions of malcontent that were Buk's stock-in-trade for some 40 years. Perhaps he was a rhetorician, a ranter, more than a real poet, but for sure he was a humorist, one of the greatest in American literature, in prose as well as verse. 395 pages.
