The Quotes
"a vast and fascinating array of photographs ... The resulting collection acts as a comprehensive pictorial record of a unique talent." The Latest
"A handsome and well produced hardcover book that must have taken some considerable effort to collate ... a magnificently handsome book, with impressive attention to detail." Beat Scene
'Charles Bukowski was internationally acknowledged as a king of the literary underworld. Foul-mouthed and potbellied, ravaged by self-neglect and alcohol abuse, with a huge mis-shapen head, matted hair and lumpy, pitted, porridge-coloured skin, he looked in his prime like something risen from the dead." The Daily Telegraph
