Paquita Maria Sanchez
Peanut butter and jelly, cigarettes and coffee, hot chocolate and marshmallows, tapatio and all things warm and edible...some combinations just work, ya know? Much like yin and yang, they twirl the night away in blissful harmony, seamlessly connected at all points of contact. Jalapenos in your spaghetti? Perfection! Edna's famous "Lunch Box"? The pride of Oklahoma alcoholism! R. Crumb and Charles Bukowski? Why in the hell didn't I think of that?

I came across this and one other Crumbukowski hybri

I read this very short book while sitting on a small footstool at Shakespeare Books on Broadway in the summer of 2006. A cat scratched me in the bookstore that day, and they let me go downstairs to wash it off in the hidden employee restroom. There was a very short (under 5 feet tall, I'd say) girl working down in the basement there, and in a short conversation with her, I noticed she had a very dry wit that I was immediately drawn to. I wanted to be her friend. I didn't say anything to her, tho ...more

Here we find three excellent Bukowski short tales with a few illustrations by Crumb, which are a fitting companion to Bukowski's prose. A little expensive and quite short, but a very nice edition nevertheless that'll provide a good (half) hour of fun. ...more

I felt sorry for Gloria, she's just a woman looking for love and care, like any of us.At the beginning I thought she just called him "whorefucker" , but I got disappointed when I found out he was lying at her, and that he was truly fucking them XD. The best sentence of this whole short story, is the one that figures as a title : BRING ME YOUR LOVE : " Bring me your love then, why the hell don't you bring me your love? " it's just .. Yummy and real ! ...more

It took me 10 minutes to read this, which at the original cover price would come to a dollar a minute. Thankfully I didn't pay that. Bukowski and Crumb are a good fit, reminiscent of Crumb and Harvey Pekar's collaboration. But there's too little of either. ...more

Robert Crumb puts his illustrations to Bukowski's short story "Bring me your love" and the results are perfect. This matchup makes you want Crumb to illustrate or atleast design the covers for every Bukowski offer. ...more

I've been wanting this for years and I finally ordered it. It came today and it was absolutely perfect. Crumb and Bukowski, what more could you ask for? A great short and ironic read. My 2011 story. ...more

Ah, the combo of Bukowski and Crumb is one that you know will end in a cynical train wreck. And this does not disappoint. Bukowski has a way of getting right to the point, and Crumb's fleshy, unflinching drawings compliment the highlights of the story so well. Yes, it will only take you 10 minutes to consume, but it is a fine 10 minutes. ...more

I love the song Bukowski by Modest Mouse so I thought I should probably try this "pretty good read" by "such an asshole." Indeed, it made my skin crawl, so I gave it two stars for being good enough to do that. Loathsome men, sad, powerless women. Ugh.

Probably not the book, or the writer, for me.

I thought this thin volume was a manila file folder when I first spotted it on the shelf in the library. It's really an illustrated short story by king curmudgeons of sixties counter culture Charles Bukowski and R. Crumb. Don't let the tags fool you, this is not a comic. It looks a lot like a children's book with its large type and captioned illustrations. Don't let that fool you either, because Bukowski and Crumb are as adult as expected.

The story is classically Bukowski about a man visiting hi

I was very intrigued by this short story. When reading it, I didn't realize how short it was and we left slightly disappointed by its length. I feel as if this was a fantastic beginning to a much longer Bukowski masterpiece. Nonetheless, this is still a very fascinating story with beautiful artwork done by R. Crumb. Two of the most controversial artists of their time coming together on a story such as this is a great time in my book. ...more

It was ok. That's it. It's a tiny little short story. I was expecting more. I don't care for illustrations. I don't care that this book was illustrated by someone called Crumb. I don't know who Crumb is. This was a crumb of a book. I love Bukowski. His poetry is amazing and always moves me. I love his novels. Hell I even love his face. But this, this was just ok. ...more
Read during high school. Not sure of the year but it was sometime before I met my husband. Probably a little after my 18th birthday. Everytime I see some hipster praise him I suggest they read Love for 17.50. Just to troll...Love for 17.50 can be found in the South of No North collection I believe...

"The doctor was a heavy man. He reeked of weight and responsibility and authority. His eyebrows looked thick and heavy, they were thick and heavy. They wanted to slide down into his wet circular mouth and vanish but life wouldn't let them"

This paragraph embodies why I love Bukowski so much and why I love this book so much.
