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 long before he died in 1994. More than a decade later, death has not slowed his production.
This collection is selected from an archive of verse 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 themselves (as he did), gambling laments and humbling poems accepting his own imminent ultimate full stop.

The thing about Bukowski is, when you read what he has to say, he's right. ( Sean Penn)
We all knew Bukowski was a tough guy, but who would have guessed that even the grave could not shut him up? ( Billy Collins)
Full of sad, hilarious lamentation and schadenfreude. As usual, not for the kiddies. But for the adults, God, yes. ( Booklist)
In an age of conformity Bukowski wrote about the people nobody wanted to be: the ugly, the selfish, the lonely, the mad. ( Observer)
A laureate of American low life. ( Time)
A sequence of poems you'll want to read from beginning to end, Come On In! is Charles Bukowski at his sad, hilarious, renegade best.
