These 189 posthumously published new poems take us deeper into the raw, wild vein of Bukowski's that extends from the early 1980s up to the time of his death in 1994.

Review: Open All Night: New Poems

User Review  - Dragan Nanic - Goodreads

These are the poems left behind and for a reason. Though there are glimpses from time to time of a strong metaphor or an amazing story, often the ends fall flat. As much as I love Bukowski, this book would be much better left unpublished. Read full review

About the author (2009)

Charles Bukowski is one of America’s best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of two. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for over fifty years. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.
