Das Buch:
Der letzte Gedichtband, den Bukowski noch zu Lebzeiten rausbrachte.

Eine starke Retrospektive auf ein langes, wildes aber auch deprimierendes Leben. (Die Texte auf Bach/Bukowski kommen alle aus diesem Buch, ebenso wie das berühmte Endzeitgedicht 'Dinosauria we'.)

Ein fettes Buch für düstere Nächte.
