Women by Charles Bukowski. 1978 Black Sparrow Press, first edition paperback. Cover and pages in fine condition, foxing at top of pages. Here Henry Chinaski, Bukowski's alter ego, has found professional success but the problem of women, or his relationship to them, remain the same, among the backdrop of the LA literary scene.

"I think I met Lydia Vance at my first poetry reading. It was at a bookstore on Kenmore Ave., The Drawbridge. Again I was terrified. Superior yet terrified."
