Charles Bukowski - Mockingbird Wish Me Luck

Charles Bukowski – Mockingbird Wish Me Luck


This isn’t Charles Bukowski’s strongest book, but it’s still a cracking collection of his poetry, and he does his usual inimitable job of using simple language to evoke complex feelings within the reader.

Usually when I read Bukowski, I’m left with a half-dozen poems which stood out above all of the others; this time, there’s just the one poem, a World War II epic which almost verges on prose. And what’s interesting about it is that it’s set wholly in America, and focuses more on the draft than on the war itself.

Overall, if you’re new to Bukowski then I wouldn’t suggest starting with this one, because it isn’t his best. Just work your way through to it if you’re devouring his entire bibliography, like I’m trying to do. After all, it’s still a pretty good book!
