Charles Bukowski and Ernest Hemingway: Barfly & Bullfighter

Coventry, England: Beat Scene Press, 2018. Limited First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. "I came to Bukowski after taking a detour from Hemingway, my first love. It led me down a cracked path to a muddy backwater reeking of dirt and grime. And yet I felt in strangely familiar territory. Though Bukowski usually mentioned Hemingway among a list of a number of authors who influenced him, he was probably the biggest one of all. Maybe that was the reason he tended to play it down." Thus begins this fascinating comparative critical essay on the lives & works of these two disparate yet mutually echoing American literary icons. Aubrey Malone, the prolific author, also wrote a noted biography of Bukowski. No. 63 in the special series of elegant chapbooks published in the UK by the Beat Scene Press, the imprint of Kevin Ring most noted for Beat Scene magazine, the indispensable resource for scholars & collectors (many issues & other BSP special publications are available here). One of 125 hand-numbered copies, this is copy No. 49/125. A most interesting & informative Bukowski & Co.-related collectible, destined for increasing rarity as are all of the Press's productions. In very fine condition, substantially mint inside & out. Very Fine. [Item #3872]
