Can you tell us more about the content? Are there Bukowski poems? Are there never-before published Bukowski poems? Basically, why would someone be intrested in purchasing this? (I love this publisher and have never been disappointed).
As far as I've understood Kevin it's a comprehensive essay on the early poetry.
Still I have forwarded your inquiry to Kevin,
letting you know asap.
The chapbook of 32 pages plus title page, endpaper and covers with foldovers is a long essay by David Calonne. He discusses Bukowski's early poetry and development, referencing Catullus amongst others. As you'll know with David, he is thorough but very readable. I'm at kevbeatscene@gmail - the chapbook is No 67 in a long running series, quite a few relating to Buk.
The 2011/12/13 Jahrbuch der Charles-Bukowski-Gesellschaft contains (in English) a 20-page article entitled The Genius Emerges: On Some Early Bukowski Poems by David (based on his address at the 2011 symposium). So, it's not clear if there's some difference in content here.
