6 years ago I visited my father at his home. He has always had a habit a giving me something of value, sentimental or monetary, it was always taken and given in love. But this time it was both. He gifted me with his Bukowski collection. Not Quite Bernadette (large folio with ink drawings), The Last Night of the Earth Poems, Ham on Rye, Hot Water Music, Hollywood, Barfly, Hank, Women, Dangling in the Tournefortia, Love is a Dog from Hell, Fire Station, Factotum, Play the Piano Drunk....., Burning in Water Drowning in Flame, All the Assholes in the World and Mine, Bring Me Your Love, You Kissed Lilly, A Bukowski Sampler (purple cover), Poems Written Before Jumping Out of An 8 Story Window, Three, In the Shadow of the Rose, 1989/1990/1991/1992 New Years Greetings from Black Sparrow Press. All are signed, some have doodles with the signature and two have original paintings. To say I was overwelmed would be an understatement. I proudly display this collection and speak of this amazing gift I have received often. I treasure these books.
