Bukowski in Pictures is the first pictorial biography of Charles Bukowski, legendary author of classic books such as Post Office, Ham on Rye and Notes of a Dirty Old Man, and the subject of the Hollywood movie Barfly. Bukowski's picaresque life - as driven writer, heavy drinker, Hollywood celebrity, family man and unlikely Don Juan - is illustrated with approximately two hundred photographs, many of which are published here for the first time. Friends, family and lovers have contributed candid photographs, and there are powerful new portraits by leading photographers. Extracts from personal letters and rare documents offer new insights that delve behind the public persona. The end result is a fascinating life in pictures that is essential for all Bukowski fans.

although quite expensive for what it is - wouldn't say it is particularly good value.Rezension aus dem Vereinigten Königreich vom 1. Februar 2016
Really interesting book, although quite expensive for what it is - wouldn't say it is particularly good value.
pretty good if it had cost $10 or $15 bucks [purchased for $24 used]Rezension aus den Vereinigten Staaten vom 11. April 2020
The book had pages stuck together by an unknown substance when I got it - was a "used" purchase. The book is smaller than i expected and the publisher/author reprinted some photos way too small so there would be room for text that most Buk fans wouldn't be interested in. The "new" price for this book I felt was way too expensive and after seeing the actual dimensions of the book i'm glad I bought "used" except for the multiple pages stuck together by an unknown substance. "Rare photos" should be published in a "large format". I guess i'll be buying a magnifying glass. Wait about 5 years you can probably find this book MUCH cheaper.
