'Fear makes me a writer, fear and a lack of confidence' Charles Bukowski chronicled the seedy underside of the city in which he spent most of his life, Los Angeles. His heroes were the panhandlers and hustlers, the drunks and the hookers, his beat the racetracks and strip joints and his inspiration a series of dead-end jobs in warehouses, offices and factories. It was in the evenings that he would put on a classical record, open a beer and begin to type... Brought up by a violent father, Bukowski suffered childhood beatings before developing horrific acne and withdrawing into a moody adolescence. Much of his young life epitomised the style of the Beat generation - riding Greyhound buses, bumming around and drinking himself into a stupor. During his lifetime he published more than forty-five books of poetry and prose, including the novels Post Office, Factotum, Women and Pulp. His novels sold millions of copies worldwide in dozens of languages. In this definitive biography Barry Miles, celebrated author of Jack Kerouac: King of the Beats, turns his attention to the exploits of this hard-drinking, belligerent wild man of literature.

Who says poetry has to be boring? Why can’t poetry be an adventure where you discover heartbreak and “happy endings” as well as sorrow and emotional drama? Who says poetry has to be dull and archaic instead of thrilling or even funny? Adventures await in this poetry collection filled with stories and tales of humorous moments, chilling anecdotes, and sorrows to break the heart. Experience poetry as voyeur, culprit, victim, and coach. Examine the teenager who barters her soul just to get by, or the woman who runs away from an abuser, or the abused who, sadly, never made it out. Laugh with the inexperienced young lovers or sigh with profound joy shared between old married couples. Rage at apathy, sneer at ineptitude, then meet a living nightmare. Finally, stand proudly beside sacrifice and honor. Within these pages, the familiar unfolds in fresh, poetic rhythms with unique viewpoints. Far from boring, this is poetry for everyone. With luck, the verses will etch themselves in your heart and live forever in the bone.

NOW A MAJOR FILM BY RALPH FIENNES, THE WHITE CROW 'A gripping account of an extraordinary life' Daily Telegraph Born on a train in Stalin's Russia, Rudolf Nureyev was ballet's first pop icon. No other dancer of our time has generated the same excitement - both on and off stage. Nureyev's achievements and conquests became legendary: he rose out of Tatar peasant poverty to become the Kirov's thrilling maverick star; slept with his beloved mentor's wife; defected to the West in 1961; sparked Rudimania across the globe; established the most rhapsodic partnership in dance history with the middle-aged Margot Fonteyn; reinvented male technique; gatecrashed modern dance; moulded new stars; and staged Russia's unknown ballet masterpieces in the West. He and his life were simply astonishing. 'Magnificent, a triumph. Captures every facet of this extraordinary man' Mail on Sunday 'The definitive study of a man who, in his combination of aesthetic grace and psychological grime, can truly be called a sacred monster' Observer 'Undoubtedly the definitive biography' Sunday Telegraph
