    Apporte-moi ton amour

    As surprised as Matthew Simmons With 'Looking For Eric' getting plenty of press I came across this little titbit: "In 2002 Cantona made his directing debut with a short, Bring Me Your Love/Apporte-Moi Ton Amour, based on a Charles Bukowski story." Anyone seen it?

    charles bukowski t-shirt

    I have a very soft spot for the "Bukowski Goes Belfast' t-shirt. Aside from the fact Belfast is where I live, the t-shirt was given to me by my best man during his speech at my wedding. Also the guy who produced the shirt is a good friend. It was topped of by them having En Vino Veritas printed...

    A few pics etc of a working press in Ireland. The press pictured is an 1830 Hopkinson's Improved Albion Letterpress. One of the more recent pics depicts the serious dangers inherent in typesetting with a friend when both of you are hungover.

    So, what other poets get you like Bukowski does?

    Billy Childish has been mentioned above but deserves mentioning again. Then there's Dan Fante, Tony O'Neill and Karl Koweski - for his latest - and Owen Roberts (who has posted here but haven't seen in a while) think our own Bill from BOS may be working with him on something...

    Hi I am the proud owner of a soft back Septuagenarian Stew that is signed on the front cover (across the top of the book) - it was obtained through a particular channel via someone who had an arrangement with Bukowski to get books signed - it may just have been one of his things to sign...

    Dan Fante on BUK

    I agree with mjp - in fact I think Dan Fante is a great writer, with very much his own style. In other interviews he has stated that he thought Bukowski was a poet rather than a novelist, or certainly a better poet than novelist. As for disagreeing with Bukowski's own truth - embellished...
