CONFESSIONS OF A MAN INSANE ENOUGH TO LIVE WITH BEASTS - INSCRIBED TO HAROLD NORSE
Mimeo Press, Bensenville, IL 1965 - First Printing, limited to no more than 500 copies. Slim octavo (21.5cm); variously-colored mimeographed sheets, stapled into pink and black illustrated card wrappers; [52pp]. Poet Harold Norse's copy, with his signature at upper margin of title page, and inscribed to him by Bukowski on verso of front wrapper: "For Hal Norse - The Horse Immortal - Charles Bukowski / 11-14-69." Betwen his inscription and his signature, Bukowski has added a drawing of a large horse. Gentle sunning along spine-fold, else very Near Fine. This "long short story" marks an important debut, as it introduced readers to Bukowski's alter-ego and recurring character Henry Chinaski. A distinguished copy, marking Bukowski's lifelong, contentious relationship with author, collaborator, and Beat Generation personality Harold Norse. His work would appear together with Bukowski's on numerous occasions, chief among them the 1969 publication Penguin Modern Poets 13 - a high-profile appearance which gave Bukowski broader exposure both in Europe and in the U.S. Krumhansl 17; Dorbin A8. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
