LOCKED IN THE ARMS OF A CRAZY LIFE is now considered the classic biography of Charles Bukowski, the hard-drinking barfly whose semi-authobiographical books about lowlife America made him a cult figure across the globe. With Bukowski's own drawings, as well as unique contributions from his friends, family and associates — including Mickey Rourke, Harry Dean Stanton, Robert Crumb, Sean Penn, Norman Mailer and Allen Ginsberg — the book is a mine of information and revelation.
This updated edition features a new preface by the author, expanded notes and a unique star rating in the bibliography of Bukowski's own works.
'This biographJ is an affectionate and thorough introduction that will not be rivalled for some time. Its effect is to revitalise rather than reduce Bukowski 's work. ' GUY MANNES-ABBOTT INDEPENDENT
'LOCKED IN THE ARMS OF A CRAZY LIFE is a generous tribute to Bukowski 's genius and it clearly and truthfully captures the spirit of Bukowski both as writer and man.'JOHN BLACK SPARROW PRESS, BUKOWSKI'S EDITOR/ PUBLISHER
'Judicious quotation from unpublished works, including drawings by Charles Bukowski, is one of the pleasures of Howard Sounes's excellent biography which, like its hero's ideal blonde, is short, shapely and full. HILARY SPURLING DAILY TELEGRAPH
