Todd Moore – Taking on Bukowski / Im Ring mit Bukowski

(bilingual risographed chapbook published by Moloko Plus, 2020)

In his short text Taking on Bukowski, Moore explains how any aspiring writer or poet should avoid imitating or emulating Bukowski. “I’ve never tried to take Bukowski out,” Moore writes, “because I know it can’t be done” and ends his text with: “if you can’t be Bukowski, then maybe you can die the way you have lived, always a little fucked up and against all odds”. Moloko Plus has published Moore’s text as a risographed chapbook and has added a fine German translation by Walter Hartmann. Moore’s poem i don’t want (to write like charles bukowski) fittingly completes this edition, which was elegantly designed by Kai Pohl and risographed by Stencilwerck, The Hague. Read more & order
