[Bukowski, Charles] Joyce, William.
Miller, Bukwoski & Their Enemies.
A Fine tight unread copy in illustrated paperback binding. No hardcover edition of this title. William Joycer is a prime example of the critic as iconoclast. Here, in several extended book reviews, he celebrates the creative spirit of Henry Miller, Charles Bukowski, and Irving Stettner while taking potshots at the academy and commercial publishing. Three essays on contemporary poetry and an article on B. Traven round out the volume. Passionate about literature, Joyce frequently goes out of his way to antagonize a literary establishment that places profit and political correctness before artistic vision. His blunt, sometimes crude language may put off some readers, but Joyce will not put anyone to sleep. The health of literary criticism in America today depends on voices like his.

Among the authors and book people discussed, are Charles Bukowski, Henry Miller, Ken Kesey, Carey McWilliams, Jacob Zeitlin, Nathanael West, Robinson Jeffers, Malcolm Lowry, Thomas Mann, Upton Sinclair, John Steinbeck, Aldous Huxley, Jack London, Theodore Dreiser, and many others.

Beerspit Night and Cursing: The Correspondence of Charles Bukowski and Sheri Martinelli, 1960-1967.
A Fine, unread copy in paperback wraps. While Bukowski needs no special introduction, his correspondent in this collection of letters may not be as well known. Sheri Martinelli was a small press editor (Anagogic & Paideumic) , protegee of Anais Nin, muse and mistress of Ezra Pound, friend of Charlie Parker, and admired by Marlon Brando and the Beat writers. It is with this background that her correspondence with Bukowski rises above the level of pedestrian. The bulk of these letters were written in the first year of their friendship in 1962 then trailed off until they ended in 1967. The letters cover the personal as well as the topics of art and writing. 380 pages.

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

[Charles Bukowski] Harrison, Russell.
Against the American Dream : Essays on Charles Bukowski.
A Fine, tight unread copy. For Russell Harrison, Charles Bukowski was a "social lyricist" a proletarian poet who saw life-on-the-job in the United States as deadening, demoralizing, yet also the stuff of art. In this collection of essays on Bukowski's poetry and fiction, Harrison is at his most original when tracing influences on the artist's work (from the Surrealists to Jackie Gleason) and when offering us Buk as the anti-Ben Franklin (that is, as the man who defined success as refusing the American Dream). Harrison offers up the first extensive in-depth critical assessment of the literary efforts of Bukowski.
