Whitman's Wild Children.
by (Bukowski, Charles) Cherkovski, Neeli.

Publisher Information:
Lapis Press,, Venice :: 1988..

A Fine copy in self-wrap paperback binding. The author (a long-time friend of Bukowski) has written a series of anecdotal profiles on ten important writers including--besides Bukowski-- John Winers, James Broughton, Philip Lamantia, Bob Kaufman, Allen Ginsberg, William Everson, Gregory Corso, Harold Norse, and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Cherkovski chose these particular authors because each, like Whitman, has taken "his own road" and had little to do with what was thought acceptable in mainstream American culture during the 1940's and 1950's. As in his highly acclaimed biography Bukowski: A Life, Cherkovski draws on personal encounters and his own reactions to individual poems in order to create biographical portraits that are at once enlightening and full of life.
