About the Author

Charles Bukowski 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 two. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for over fifty years. 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.

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. ****

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!

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...

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.

Bukowski was a genius. One of a kind! I enjoy almost everything he wrote to some extent. Such a keen ability to cast light upon the ironic aspects of life, and the humor, sadness, joy, etc., that lies within them.

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.

This short book falls into the category of something that always makes me laugh with a touch of sadness when it is so clearly presented to me: Proof that women are nearly always right. Sad/funny short story by Bukowski with equally sad/funny/graphic drawings by R. Crumb. An interesting little romp for sure.
