Bukowski in a Sundress: Confessions from a Writing Life - Kim Addonizio

There are a lot of poets out there who fancy themselves rock stars but the trophy is currently held by Kim Addonizio and her latest book, Bukowski In a Sundress, only strengthens that conviction. With all the visceral honesty that defines her poetry, these essays strip bare the life of a poet known for her untamable approach to all things. She burns away the image of the bohemian literati lifestyle with stories about her broken relationships, struggles with drinking and the certainty that being a successful poet is probably one of the more ridiculous things to happen to anybody. Compulsively readable, Bukowski In a Sundress is Addonizio in top form: self-mocking, vulnerable, wild, funny, full of jagged edges and, above all, utterly unapologetic.
