ordering buk books from the bukowski page

got the message that you wanted to order stuff online, so below you'll find links to books and merchandise for buk collectors. just recently switched over to amazon.com to offer better selection, prices and international ordering convenience. when you order using these links, you'll support the page. thanks. btw, the previous folks handling the ordering told me that bukowski books are the most stolen books in their store. when they put up a sign to this effect, buk books sold like hotcakes. guess the logic is that if they're good enough to steal, they're worth buying... best. silva

order form

please note that turnaround times on shipping are subject to change without notice. i've left pricing off as that changes too often; as you can imagine, hardcovers will cost more than paperbacks, and i've listed them as discrete items for that reason. orders will ship within 24 hours unless otherwise noted.

silva's picks


i've bee frequently asked what books i'd recommend and i can say that there's not a single piece of bukowski's in which you will fail to find truth in doses or in total. still, if stranded on an island i could love life with the books directly below. Keep scrolling for a more complete group of books and cds available for order.
