Bukowski in Pictures Ed. and Introduced by Howard Sounes (Canongate / 2001)
'Bukowski in Pictures is the first pictorial biography of Charles Bukowski, legendary author of classic books of the American subculture including Post Office, Ham on Rye and Notes of a Dirty Old Man. Bukowski's picaresque life - as driven writer, heavy drinker, Hollywood celebrity, family man and unlikely Don Juan - is illustrated with approximately two hundred photographs, many of which are published here for the first time. Friends, family and lovers have contributed candid photographs, and there are powerful new portraits by leading photographers including Gottfried Helnwein, former Rolling Stone art director Tony Lane, and Gerard Malanga. Artists Dave Geiser and R. Crumb have provided illustrations. Extracts from personal letters and rare documents offer new insights that delve behind the public persona.'
