Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Tras publicar mas de cincuenta libros en vida, muchos relatos y articulos importantes de Bukowski continuan dispersos o ineditos. Este volumen es una antologia de esta obra desperdigada. Empezando por los primeros cuentos que publico en revistas a finales de la decada de 1940, el libro brinda al lector un viaje contracultural por las batallas literarias de los cincuenta, la agitacion psicodelica de los sesenta, los placeres narcisistas de los setenta, y la distopia reaganista de los ochenta. Ademas, ofrece cronicas de sus infames recitales publicos, resenas de su propia obra, desternillantes entregas de su columna en la prensa, y otras joyas recien descubiertas. / Despite having published over fifty books in his lifetime, many important stories and articles have remained dispersed and unedited. This volume is an anthology of these scattered works. Beginning with the first stories Bukowski published in magazines towards the end of the 1940s, the book offers the reader a counter-cultural journey through the literary battles of the 1950s, the psychedelic agitation of the 1960s, the narcissistic pleasures of the 1970s and the Reaganist dystopia of the 1980s. Furthermore, it contains accounts of his infamous public readings, reviews of his own work, and hilarious entries of his column in the press, as well as other recently discovered jewels.
