Santa Barbara: Black Sparrow Press, 1977. Limited Edition. Octavo. Item #031629

#36 of 75 copies, signed by Bukowski and with an original watercolor painting of the dog from Hell with tissue guard. Alternating between tough and gentle, sensitive, and gritty, Bukowski lays bare the myriad facets of love, its selfishness, its narcissism, its randomness, its mystery, and its misery. Ultimately, its true joyfulness, endurance, and redemptive power. It was later made into Crazy Love, a documentary on Bukowsky which he, Sean Penn, Madonna, Elliot Gould and his wife watched in its premier (September 1987). He regarded it as the most accurate media portrayal of his poetry. Bound in 1/4 brown, white, green, and red flecked patterned corduroy cloth over pictorial paper covered boards depicting a Gargoyle in brown, lettering in red, black, brown and red within a turquoise frame. A fine copy. [Krumhansl, 6d].
