Charles Bukowski always felt Wormwood Review was the best small magazine out there and was grateful that they were one of the first to recognize his work. In return, Bukowski continued to contribute to the magazine right up until his death in 1994.

Published in 1966, Only 500 copies of Wormwood 22 were printed, this one being copy 336.

The issue features two Uncollected Bukowski poems:

In This Place We Eat Apples And Cut Our Fingers On Beercans - pg. 6
Notes On A Bluebird Flying Past My Window - pg. 6

Both poems never appeared in any Charles Bukowski books.

This copy is in Very Good + condition with sunning to the spine and bumps to the oversized covers.

I specialize in Charles Bukowski books only. I am selling a wide variety of Bukowski items that will fit any budget and are all very collectible.

Wormwood Review was published by the legendary Marvin Malone (1930-1996). Malone was a pharmacologist, scientific researcher, educator, artist, poetry collector, and editor. Upon arrival to Storrs, Connecticut in 1960, Malone discovered the second issue of Wormwood Review and soon took over the publication as the sole editor, publisher, and designer (alias A. Sypher), producing quarterly issues until his death in 1996.

Wormwood Review ran for 144 issues (1959-1997). Christa Malone, Marvin's daughter, co-edited issue 144 after Marvin's death, and released issue 145/146 as a special tribute issue to Marvin in 1999.
