Selected Letters Volume 4: 1987 - 1994


Charles Bukowski was a uniguely talented and prolific writer, best known for his Beat Generation writing that reflected his experience of low life urban America.
Selected Letters Volume 4 collects together correspondence with various friends, lovers and literary contacts, providing an intimate and fascinating insight into Bolowski's mind, his emotions and his attitude towards his own creativity, right up until his death in 1994.


  • Bukowski carved out a unique position in American letters. he was a cult figure who disdained movements and followers, a working-class autodidact who dared to take himself seriously as a writer but who couldn't stop mocking himself as a subject.
