Yes this is by far one of my Lukiest days. I am in awe that this book found me. I first read post office about 15 years ago and since that day bukowski has become one of my favorite authors, the others being HST, Kerouac, Burroughs, and Chuck Palahniuk. I have always wanted a signed book of these men, (which the exception of palahniuk, I have several) but never thought it would happen. Due to the amount of money that they command, and the worry they would be fake off ebay. I believe that this is -his- signature due to the nature i found the book. For one It was found along with many other poetry publications and an extra eight copies of this book alone. Leading me to believe it at one time was owned by someone who was involved with Poetry and the book itself. Also the gentleman i bought it from had not known what the books even were, much less the inscription, so he wasnt trying to scam me for my $5. and wherever he got them from he evidently wasn't scammed either. It simply amazes me that i showed up at that sale, (i wasnt even planning on going to garage sales yesterday). and that I possibly the one person in this closed minded podunk town that even knows who bukowski is, let alone adores his work, and have wished he could own a signed copy of any of his books. And just so happened to look in a milk crate under a table and scan through a few books to see this and know what it was. It wanted to be found, and somehow it was. It will sit in my book cabinet along with my collection of hanks books and my other favorites. It has a home and will be cherished!
