Collected poems of Charles Bukowski.
«It’s not uncommon for writers to publish posthumously, but no one at Bukowski’s pace. A new poetry collection, ‘Slouching Toward Nirvana,’ is out from HarperCollins, which acquired the rights to several of his books from Black Sparrow Press. The poetry is from a body of work held back for publication after Bukowski’s death.
Although it’s not explicitly stated when the work in ‘Slouching’ was written, judging by the style and themes, it’s from later in his life. The poems are minimalist and narrative. Death is central, as it often is. Earlier, Bukowski wrote about dodging suicide; in this later work he parries natural death.»
