    What kind of bastard?

    In the poem "the twins," Bukowski says: Now, is he saying that his father hinted that he [Bukowski] was born out of wedlock or is it just good old name-calling?

    First job ever

    Was it really at Sears & Roebuck? I was just listening to a tape from the mid-late 1970s where says his first job was at Union Pacific Railway, and that this mother got him the job through a friend. Then he goes on to say his second job was at S&R, making 65 cents an hour --"a good pay in those...

    New poetry collection: "Storm for the Living and the Dead"

    I'm happy to say that the new Bukowski collection will most probably come out next Fall. It's all unpublished and uncollected poetry --there are 72 previously uncollected poems and 26 unpublished poems, totaling some 300 pages. After editing OW, OC, OL and EB, this was the title I was really...

    Dating a couple of poems

    I'm trying to date a couple of undated typescript poems that I will probably use in the next Bukowski collection, due late next year. Here's the first one. At first, I thought it was from 1970, especially because of the zeros in "90027", but looking at a few 1972 manuscripts kind of made me...

    New book of prev unpublished/uncollected poetry in 2017

    I'm putting together a new collection of previously unpublished/uncollected poetry to be published sometime next year --hopefully. I have found some 150 great poems for this collection, but I'm sure I missed a few gems while re-reading everything again. If you have any suggestions, I'd love...

    I'm thinking of using a self-portrait for Essential B. The one that I found in my files is from The Outsider 4/5, but I recall having seen some other self-portraits from the same period. Perhaps they're in the Unknown Bukowski Pics thread?

    Perhaps "we ain't got no money, honey, but we got rain"? Or maybe "Rimbaud Be Damned"?

    The Act of Art: Bukowski in Harper's (July 2015)

    It'd be great to know what Bukowski would make of this. As he said over and over and again, he unsuccessfully tried Harper's in the 1940s, when he was a completely unknown writer. Over the years, he also tried The New Yorker, Esquire, The Atlantic Monthly, Poetry and other major periodicals, but...

    Although the interview took place in early January 2014, it just came out here: RECEI/70 - 2015/RCEI 70-2015.pdf (pages 171-180). There's some interesting tidbits about Bukowski and editing.
