Rated 5 out of 5 by from Personal Favourite This is one of my favourite collections of poetry from Bukowski. They are very strong and personal, showing a vulnerability that I've found lacking in some of his other collections. Just beautiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ???? I love Bukowski's novels! I would and will buy ALL of them; one problem though....the descriptions of his books here are all the same, not even telling the shopper if the book is a novel or poetry. I am not interested in poetry. I won't order anymore of his books until I am sure that I am not getting a book of poems.
