    Just a quick question, is there a way in this forum to view a list of threads in which you have written a message? (To view replies etc) Can't find it if it's there for some reason... It's on the other couple of forums I am a member of. Thanks, G.

    On the new ecco editions, the list of Buk's books has been reduced, but includes "You Kissed Lilly" (1978). According to the book this is available from ecco, but I can't find it. What is it and is it available? Thanks, G.

    The Best Hotel On Skid Row

    In an interview with Mary Ann Swissler in 1990 (Sunlight Here I Am, p258-9), there is mention of a HBO documentray called "The Best Hotel On Skid Row" which Bukowski narrated. Apparently it was also screened at Cannes. It's listed on IMDB. Has anyone seen this? Is it still available anywhere...

    Factotum vs. Barfly/Best Actor to Play an Older Buk

    I never really thought of comparing these two movies until I saw the scene both movies share, where Henry meets Wanda and they go to the liquor store, get a couple of six packs... etc. How well do you feel Factotum translated Buk's writing style to film? And how does that compare to what...

    The New Poems

    Hello. I've been a Bukowski fan for years, first discovered him by mistake in a bookshop I used to work in etc etc etc... I now have most of his books. Having talked to several different people about the posthumous publications, I'd like to get a few opinions on them. I have Bone Palace...
