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

Sempre fiz um esforço descomunal para gostar da prosa do Bukowski e não consigo, aqui o resultado não é distinto, tem o plus das ilustrações do Crumb, mas definitivamente só gosto da poesia dele mesmo.

Pensé que decir relatos ilustrados abarcaba mas de las 4 ilustraciones que tiene jajajaja.
Sin embargo, es Bukowski, yo le perdono todo.
Algo que he visto repetidamente es que, en la mayoria de sus libros, hay una especie de reciclaje de historias, lo cual no me molesta en absoluto, acá son nuevas, poquitas, pero nuevas.
Se lee rapidísimo, bien puede usarse como una pequeña introducción.

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.

ایده ی جالبی داشت و توصیفات بوکوفسکی هم مثل همیشه جذاب بود. اما به نظرم زیاد پخته نشده بود و زیادی کوتاه بود. انگار که همون ایده خام چاپ شده باشه.

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 !

Gratamente satisfecha con estos tres relatos de Bukowski. Aunque mucho había escuchado sobre su violencia y su desesperanza, no se compara con descubrirlo por mano propia. Además, esta edición cuenta con las ilustraciones de Crumb lo que, sin duda, le da un aire todavía más trágico a los relatos. Muy recomendable.

Bukowski + Crumb = Unbeatable combination.

Kort verhaal over jaloezie en waanzin. Knappe illustraties van de grote Crumb. Uitgegeven bij het legendarische Ecco.

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.

Trágico, irreverente y cargado de realismo crudo, como una bofetada. Siempre el mejor, Bukowski.

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.

Who considers 3 pages a book? It’s not even a magazine.

Distintos, muy corto el libro
Historias cortas y atrevidas que no creo volver a leer
Eso sí, es una buena forma de conocer a Bukowski si nunca antes lo leíste.
