"The Pleasures of the Damned" is a selection of the best works from Bukowski's long poetic career, including the last of his never-before-collected poems. Celebrating the full range of the poet's extraordinary and surprising sensibility, and his uncompromising linguistic brilliance, these poems cover a rich lifetime of experiences and speak to Bukowski's "immense intelligence, the caring heart that saw through the sham of our pretenses and had pity on our human condition" (New York Quarterly). "The Pleasures of the Damned" is an astonishing poetic treasure trove, essential reading for both longtime fans and those just discovering this unique and legendary American voice.
