desert island books (1 Viewer)

i've been a fan of Buk for years and i've read a good amount of his books, but i've never had the chance to sit down with other Bukowski fans to discuss specific works, so i don't know if i'm missing certain books that are quite possibly his best.

so, if you were stuck on a desert island and could only bring 3 of his books (poetry or prose), which would you bring?

for me, it would be:
Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame
Ham on Rye
Last Night of the Earth Poems

Gerard K H Love

Appreciate your friends
Well, 3 books would not be enough. Pleasures of the Damned should be one since it is a 'best of' book and its long. 'You get so Alone' would surely be appropriate.

the only good poet

One retreat after another without peace.
it would have to be all poetry volumes:

The Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over The Hills
Dangling In The Tournefortia
The Last Night Of The Earth Poems

there again i may forfeit one of the above for Screams From The Balcony.
