Ham on Rye - Signed - Charles Bukowski

First edition, signed with an additional drawing of Bukowski’s little man and a bottle, number 80 of 350 copies.

The first of Bukowski’s intentionally? poorly disguised autobiographies, which was followed by ‘Factotum ‘
Post Office’ and ‘Women.

‘Charles Bukowski details the long, lonely years of his own hardscrabble youth in the raw voice of alter ego Henry Chinaski. From a harrowingly cheerless childhood in Germany through acne-riddled high school years and his adolescent discoveries of alcohol, woman, and the Los Angeles Public Library's collection of D.H. Lawrence, Ham on Rye offers a crude, brutal, and savagely funny portrait of an outcast's coming-of-age during the desperate days of the Great Depression.’ [from the later
HarperCollins edition]

Hot Water Music - Signed - Charles Bukowski

1983 - Black Sparrow Press, Santa Barbara - No. 60 of 400 signed and numbered copies. First Edition
A signed first edition of what is considered one of Bukowki’s best short story collections, the other two being ‘Notes of a Dirty Old Man’ and ‘Erections, Ejaculations, Exhibitions, and General Tales of Ordinary Madness’.

‘With his characteristic raw and minimalist style, Charles Bukowski takes us on a walk through his side of town in Hot Water Music. He gives us little vignettes of depravity and lasciviousness, bite sized pieces of what is both beautiful and grotesque.

The stories in Hot Water Music dash around the worst parts of town – a motel room stinking of sick, a decrepit apartment housing a perpetually arguing couple, a bar tended by a skeleton – and depict the darkest parts of human existence. Bukowski talks simply and profoundly about the underbelly of the working class without raising judgement.

In the way he writes about sex, relationships, writing, and inebriation, Bukowski sets the bar for irreverent art – his work inhabits the basest part of the mind and the most extreme absurdity of the everyday.’ - from the
Harper Collins edition.

Women - Signed - Charles Bukowski

1978 - Black Sparrow Press, Santa Barbara - No. 216 of 300 signed and numbered copies. First Edition
A rather scarce signed limited edition of this Bukowski favourite, but obviously contentious considering the glaring focus on his favourite topic, or is that booze, anyway it’s Bukowski, take him as he is or leave well alone...
