Présentation de l'éditeur
War All the Time is a selection of poetry from the early 1980s. Charles Bukowski shows that he is still as pure as ever but he has evolved into a slightly happier man that has found some fame and love. These poems show how he grapples with his past and future colliding.
Biographie de l'auteur
Charles Bukowski is one of America’s best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of two. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for over fifty years. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.

I ended up haviong to buy a new copy after my 3rd ed. Black Sparrow copy mysteriously vanished over the winter. Although the ECCO editions are nice enough, (hardcovers included), the print seems a little different and the paper feels a bit thinner, but I suppose I might be a little biased as I loved the original printings (plus you'll never see an autograph/drawing on a HarperCollins edition!).
Some really good long poems are included which always makes for great re-reading, but works like "the condition" and "suggestion for an arrangment" will have you whipping off lines from memory, maybe just like Buk did when he wrote them.
is an hysterical, decadent, powerful and exciting, tribute to Thoughrobreds and their Fans.
If you can't actually be at the track, Bukowski's poetry will carry you there; from Gate to Wire, his poetry is OUTSTANDING!!!...
Holden Caulfield said, "What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it." I loved this idea when I first read The Catcher in the Rye. I don't feel like that often, though. And actually, in Bukowski's case, I'm pretty sure I *wouldn't* like him much if I were in the same room as him...but I sure as hell enjoy reading about him and what he's doing, probably because his poems also include his reactions to the world around him. He writes like he can't help but write, and I appreciate that. Now I've gotta check out some of his prose...
