Reach For the Sun: Selected Letters 1978-1994. Volume 3.

Santa Rosa: Black Sparrow, 1999. First Printing of the First Trade Edition. A Fine copy in a fine acetate cover. This is one of the 750 copies of the trade edition. These letters cover the final years of Bukowski's life, a bittersweet period that brought fame and prosperity along with tuberculosis and leukemia. Bukowski's correspondents, mostly publishers, editors, and fellow poets, include John Martin, William Packard, and Gerald Locklin. His letters to them rant against his critics, praise early influences like Celine and John Fante, and harp on his favorite subjects: wine, women, and the racetrack. Above all, however, they reveal a man dedicated to his craft. Item #26102
