    Did you try via email? I could provide you with his mail-addy, if you'd want to give it another shot. Gerry has always been open and friendly, also attending the symposia of the Bukowski-Society a couple of times. But in the last years I got the impression, that he's a little tired to talk...

    art & artists

    after Warhol you can't do a banana anymore. just like after Magritte you just can't do an apple (which Yoko Ono didn't realize in 1966).

    in the German TV docutainment "Bares für Rares" on Nov 9, 2020 The "Big White Book" sold for 1.400,- EUR (approx 1,700.- USD) without slipcase and having stains on the backcover! The expert was quite okay, but listening to the bunch of clueless bidders was annoying beyond belief. watch it here:

    Bukowski would visit both Rudolph Valentino and Tyrone Powers graves?

    ... and she was engaged in the entertainment-industry, so this may be the link to the actors. Besides Valentino was a remarkable chigolo, just as Hank at this time.

    Factotum - broken clock scene

    my wild guess would be that he didn't care. p.s. I too think, the scene was funny, at least in the movie.

    The final two live readings performed by Charles Bukowski archived as a quality 4 disc limited edition vinyl record box set

    Let me put it that way: To convince Thomas Schmitt to digitize his whole Buk-video-material (which had been sleeping on some shelfes for over 40 years, magnetic-band!, slowly fading away) took me 3 years, but only ca. 4,000.- USD and since then we not only have the FULL reading Bukowski gave in...

    Bukowski Transgender feelings?

    thanks for making me aware of an English word I didn't know. Of course it all is a huge conspiracy. Bukowski tortured little children in caves to swallow their blood and invented Covid to establish a worldwide dictatorship of horse-racing. But why did you have to come out with these facts...

    Crucifix in a Deathhand title

    Depends a lot on the condition you'd request. If you can live with a couple of minor flaws (and assuming you're no hardcore collector, you definitely can) it goes at amazingly cheap prizes. This IS, what I call amazingly cheap. I've bought mine for about 250.- USD somewhen around 2004-2006 and...

    Database updated

    ok, I'll solve this riddle. - Poque didn't show a seperate (additional) True-Story page, but a close up of the same (for reading-convenience, I guess). - The folding-lines appear to be correct and matching, when you put every bit in its right place. Like so: I can't remember having ever...

    Did Bukowski buy books

    He owned a copy of Schopenhauer's "Parerga and Paralipomena", which were sent to him as a gift by a German guy named Ulrich Aigner in 1984 (which goes to show, how he came to nod so much to Schopenhauer in "You Get So Alone", 1986).
