Présentation de l'éditeur
There is not a wasted word in Dangling in the Tournefortia, a selection of poems full of wit, struggles, perception, and simplicity. Charles Bukowski writes of women, gambling and booze while his words remain honest and pure.
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.

But, having found your way here, you know all that. I'm preaching to the choir. (Unless you are that rare tournefortia afficianado who cares only for plants and nothing for the sublime lines of the master. In that case, you must quit this place for a more horticulturaly friendly environment at once. At once, do you hear?)
There are many fine poems in this book: "The Lisp," "The Man at the Piano," "One for Sherwood Anderson," the list goes on and on. It's an outstanding collection, one any Bukophile should own. Hell, buy two and give one to a friend. That, at least will keep them from stealing your copy for a while, at least until someone steals their own and they need another -- damn it! -- right this minute and they know where you keep yours. Come to think of it, maybe you should buy three or four of every Bukowksi title. God knows I've lost dozens of copies of his books through the years. I take solace in the understanding that they are still out there, still being loaned and stolen and loaned again, making the rounds from needy hand to needy hand and will be doing so from now till they fall to pieces or the end of things descends upon us all.
