DANGLING IN THE TOURNEFORTIA. Charles Bukowski.

DANGLING IN THE TOURNEFORTIA

Santa Barbara: Black Sparrow, 1981. First edition, signed limited and enhanced. Hardcover. #119 of 350 hardcover copies numbered and signed by the author. Occasionally, Bukowski would take a break from the tedium of signing, and, let his mind wander and, he would write down whatever came into his head in that instant. Like a mental erection, that had to explode on the page, and, in this copy, though only his signature was called for, he wrote down his thoughts; "“People Who Constantly / Talk About “Love” / Remind Me Very Much / Of A Pair Of Gloves / Lost In That Compart- / ment of an automobile / Far To The Right And / Forgotten Until Found / In A Junkyard A / Decade Later To Be / Worn Upon The / Hands Of A / Sadist. For Further / Use.” Signed “Charles Bukowski.” With two original drawings, a dog, and a large flower. A one-of-a-kind copy, 281pp of poetry with an impromptue short story at the end! A very good plus, to near fine, clean copy with red backstrip and decorated boards with acetate jacket. Item #13530
