|Interview with Fernanda Pivano . . .
LAUGHING WITH THE GODS
In 1980 Fernando Pivano, noted Italian critic, translator and author, came to the United States to interview one of the world’s singular writers, Charles Bukowski. Bukowski had become famous for his lower- depths fiction and poetry. Who was this man? What made him write the way he did? How did he live? How did he write? These and other questions were to be asked during the interview. But it is only a part of this book, which is now being published in English for the first time. Pivano has surrounded the interview with a generous helping of comment, critique, and warmly worded appraisal.
Though Bukowski doesn’t sound quite sober throughout the interview … his
dissipated, irreverent qualities come through loud and clear, making
this a sure pleaser for his fans.
A fascinating informal look at one of the 20th century’s best
writers. Check it out.
