"Love is a puppy From Hell captures Bukowski's massive expertise for taking pictures a temper and throwing the reader into his global. this can be a great variation of contemporary poetry that completely captures the degenerated angst of the interval. what's rather remarkable this is Bukowski's acute wisdom of the decay that surrounds him."

"Take off the rose-colored glasses...return your seats to their upright your head among your knees and get ready for a crash touchdown. Don't get me unsuitable: this ebook isn't really a diatribe condemning love. We've all learn and enjoyed our Byron, yet now it's time to step during the having a look glass, young children. Love may possibly "walk in good looks just like the night" yet, "Love, Bukowski Style"...asks you to recollect that "the night" isn't the easiest venue for readability of imaginative and prescient. Bukowski speaks to that different aspect of love...vitriolic, soul-destroying, perverted, barbaric and insane. All, who've ever enjoyed, will locate the phrases for his or her feelings...the emotions for his or her loss of words... in Bukowski's auto-Eros-dissection. Why may I recommend you learn this quantity of poetry? Why may someone are looking to topic themself to such unpleasantries? what sort of sadist am I, that i'd ask you to intentionally topic your self to the soreness of affection? to understand love, is to understand the discomfort of affection. but for all of the discomfort inherent in love, we search love time and again. not anything routines our presents of desire and religion extra strenuously. Love could be a "dog from hell" to Bukowski, yet he's nonetheless not able to conceal his wish, his want and his wish for extra love. Bukowski - alcoholic, misanthrope, barbarian, gutter rat - who writes of affection and will nonetheless say..."It softens a man."
