Hank. The Life oF Charles Bukowski.
by [Bukowski, Charles] Cherkovski, Neeli.

Publisher Information:
Black Sparrow, Santa Rosa: 1991.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine mylar dust jacket. This copy is signed by both Cherkovski & Bukowski. This special edition contains the Random House sheets, bound by Black Sparrow in a signed numbered edition. One of only 200 copies. Charles Bukowski is notorious for living the hard-drinking, womanizing, sordid L.A. life depicted in his prose and poetry. In this sympathetic biography, Cherkovski plays down the unsavory elements of Bukowski's reputation, including an antagonistic nature brought on by alcohol, instead portraying him as the social ousider's friend and hero. Despite abusive parents who disapproved of his writing, and childhood acne that caused his peers to ostracize him and that permanently scarred his face, Bukowski, Cherkovski shows, became a dedicated, prolific artist who published in and helped found numerous literary journals, later perpetuating his own legend and attaining celebrity status through egotistical, wild behavior. This profile partially de-romanticizes the Bukowski myth, allowing the integrity of the poet's works to prove him an admirable, if contradictory character.
