WINNER for BEST POETRY COLLECTION of 2016 at the eFestival of Words!
Poems inspired by (and many about) Charles Bukowski. A touching tribute to Buk that captures the self-inflicted madness of the poet in all of us. Topics include loss and pain, hope and struggle, from childhood to beyond the grave.Includes 120 sad, funny, shocking poems like "Death March to the Food Bank," "This Dusty Soul," and "Bukowski's Ghost."
"With Bukowski's Ghost, Jackson Dean Chase invokes the spirit of the greatest poet of our time with the respect and admiration he deserves. This is an honest, intense, and remarkable collection by a fresh and powerful new voice."
--Terry Trueman, Printz Honor author of Stuck in Neutral
"Jackson's poems are haunting enough I can feel Charles Bukowski's breath on the back of my neck."
"...My all time favorite book. Jackson lets you into the deepest parts of his heart and soul."
"I'm not generally a huge fan of poetry, but Bukowski's Ghost struck a nerve and for the first time ever, I read a book of poetry from cover to cover."
"Poems immersed in the despair of the lost, broken and lonely. Poems with the promise of something better, something real and alive. A wake-up call to live life with open eyes before it is too late. Highly recommended, but be careful--you may find yourself changed after reading this."
--Kindle reviewer (UK)
