About the Author

Charles Bukowsk is one of America's best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose, and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of three. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for fifty years. He published his first story in 1944 when he was twenty-four and began writing poetry at the age of thirty-five. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.

Format: Paperback
Bring Me Your Love is a 1983 short story by Charles Bukowski. The story itself is above average for Buk and far superior to There's No Business, which is offered by Black Sparrow Press in this same format. The R. Crumb art is very compatible with the tale. It's the story of a man visiting his wife in a mental institution and the conversations that follow. Typical Bukowski subject matter...madhouses, women, sex, booze & not much hope at all. If your shelves are already filled with the real Buk books, I would definitely recommend adding this to your collection. Keep in mind, we are talking about a fifteen page book here! There's not much tohold, hence the great price.

Heard of Bukowski? What's all the fuss about? you may ask. This little gem from Buk will give you a good intro into the world of Bukowski - booze, women, and mayhem!

If you like Bukowski, or Crumb, you gotta have this. The story is a typical Bukowski oddball love story, and the illustraions are like Crumb can see the mental pictures you get reading it. A great price too. I saw this one on e-bay going for like 15 bucks, people don't shop around I guess.

I read a lot of comic books; that's no secret. Part of the reason I do reviews on these three websites is to get recommendations. When I heard of this project, featuring Charles Bukowski and R. Crumb, I ordered it almost immediately. Bring Me Your Love is on the face of it, a little disappointing. It's a 1000-word short story with three or four R. Crumb drawings thrown in. Don't get me wrong; it's a good story, about a man and his girlfriend visiting the man's wife in a mental institution.

I was actually curious how much I paid for this little short story with the three or four drawings. $7.81, including shipping. I don't know, but I kind of liked it. If you're a fan of Bukowski (I'm not, really), it's definitely recommended. I might buy some Bukowski next time I scrape together the $35 needed to get free shipping. ****

It's not a book, but more of a pamphlet or small 'zine. Only a few pages. Still glad to have it, I suppose.

After hearing so much "love" about Charles Bukowski, I was really curious and surprised that all the talk was true. I was really moved by the concentrated sheer excellence of this short story that was beautifully illustrated. Not since O'Henry have I read something so human and brave. Flawless. Every single word fits. It's a masterpiece in economy and impact. A deceptive and deliciously simple style that slaps you hard in the face and also makes you gasp. It is honest.

I liked it, its a very good Bukowsky type of story, however its juts like 5 pages long, and its way to expensive, and if u add postage, wow i payed way too much for 1 story! i wish i would have seen it at a library i would have just read it there in 5 minutes....

I love Crumb and Bukowski, and these stories are entertaining, but these are far too short for the price (5 pages-ish). Bring me Your Love only has like 3 illustrations for the whole story.

Again, these are good stories and the illustrations are good, I guess I was just expecting something more like a graphic novel than a pamphlet for the price...
