(P/B) COME ON IN!
NEW POEMS
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0055

Now published in the UK for the first time, Come On In! is Charles Bukowski at his sad, hilarious, renegade best: a sequence of poems you'll want to read from beginning to end. Bukowski's unmistakable charisma - an ex-down-and-outer who wrote of booze and loneliness in maverick, confident free verse - made him one of the world's most popular poets. This collection is from an archive that the author left to be published after his death. It includes poems of love and sex, advice to so-called losers (as he once was) to have confidence in them...

(P/B) THE BANDINI QUARTET
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0018

One of the great outsider figures of twentieth-century literature, John Fante possessed a style of deceptive simplicity, full of emotional immediacy and tremendous psychological point. Among the novels, short stories and screenplays that comprised his career, Fante's crowning accomplishments were, for many, his four stories about a certain uncomplicated character from the hills of Abruzzi. Collected together in one volume for the first time, The Bandini Quartet tells of Arturo Bandini, Fante's fictional alter ego, an impoverished young Ita...

Everyone, that is, except Newton, and he's a dog. What could possibly make someone change their mind about the human race...? (From the publisher)...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0129

In On Love, we see Charles Bukowski reckoning with the complications of love and desire. Alternating between the tough and the tender, the romantic and the gritty, Bukowski exposes the myriad faces of love in the poems collected here - its selfishness and its narcissism, its randomness, its mystery and its misery, and, ultimately, its true joyfulness, endurance and redemptive power. Whether writing about his daughter, his lover, or his work, Bukowski is fiercely honest and reflective, using love as a prism to look at the world and to view ...

(P/B) DREAMING OF BABYLON
A PRIVATE EYE NOVEL 1942
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0132

When you hire C. Card, you have scraped the bottom of the private eye barrel. And when Card is hired to steal a body from the morgue, he needs to stop dreaming, find bullets for his gun and get there before someone else does. Not since Trout Fishing in America has Brautigan so successfully combined his wild sense of humour with his famous poetic imagination. In this parody of the hard-boiled crime novel, the adventures of seedy, not-too-bright C. Card are a delight to both the mind and the heart. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) THE MATHEMATICS OF THE BREATH AND THE WAY
THE WRITING LIFE
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0164

In The Mathematics of the Breath and the Way, Charles Bukowski considers the art of writing, and the art of living as writer. Bringing together a variety of previously uncollected stories, columns, reviews, introductions, and interviews, this book finds him approaching the dynamics of his chosen profession with cynical aplomb, deflating pretentions and tearing down idols armed with only a typewriter and a bottle of beer.

(P/B) HOW MUSIC WORKS
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0173

How Music Works is David Byrne's bestselling, buoyant celebration of a subject he has spent a lifetime thinking about. Drawing on his own work over the years with Talking Heads, Brian Eno, and his myriad collaborators - along with journeys to Wagnerian opera houses, African villages, and anywhere music exists - Byrne shows how music emerges from cultural circumstance as much as individual creativity. It is his magnum opus, and an impassioned argument about music's liberating, life-affirming power. (From the publisher)...
