About this deal

In one margin is written: ‘ Bukowski seems genuinely troubled/depressed by the imagery of failed relationships and their aftermath – the failings of love and the intended + unintended ways we hurt one another’. Only sometimes do we do do as well as we could in love -- I mean, be the kind of partners we could or need to be. Alternating between tough and gentle, sensitive and gritty, Bukowski lays bare the myriad facets of love—its selfishness and its narcissism, its randomness, its mystery and its misery, and, ultimately, its true joyfulness, endurance, and redemptive power.

I tend to rag on Chuck Palahniuk a lot, but he really fits this idea for me, and if I can quickly explain it, perhaps I won’t have to keep using him as an example anymore. Also like a setting sun, people like this aren’t something you can hang around long or you will get hurt (or loose your vision if you stare at the sun too long!

We can’t be simply made up of only our failures and sadness, we must learn to deal with them, get past them, and win by being stronger than our problems. I mean, compared to something like the fucking DaVinci Code (that should be the title; The Fucking DaVinci Code), which has sold 40 million copies.

Our team is made up of book lovers who are dedicated to sourcing and providing the best books for kids.It turns out that one of my closest friends, a friend I have not seen in years and have been separated from by the circumstances of life that separate even the closest of people, had gone through this book and left me all sorts of comments for me to think about, as well as comment upon my own reaction. He’s the guy you met in the 1980s who was always belied up to the bar, talking about all the women he’s had and how they’ve brought him nothing but pain.

Most people, especially teenagers, chase after love like its something they need but instead it's ego-centric desire and lust. First published in 1977, Love Is a Dog from Hell is a collection of Bukowski's poetry from the mid-seventies.A lot of his words are oddly prophetic – “‘your poems about the girls will still be around 50 years from now when the girls are gone,’ my editor phones me. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp. The loneliness that's caused by marginalization has remained for many years between him and America's critics, that they didn't even count him to any group that thrives with literaturic life not to mention he was independent except of himself; so he distend himself from any institutionalized or governmental representation and rather remained loyal to the proletariat oppressed class.
