The captain is out to lunch and the sailors have taken over the ship by Charles Bukowski ( Book )
12 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 460 libraries worldwide
Journals, with illustrations by Robert Crumb. Raw, iconoclastic, by turns rueful and hilarious, these last journals by Charles Bukowski have found their perfect match: the brilliant, outrageous comic art of Robert Crumb who has provided a portrait of the author plus twelve striking full-page drawings illustrating select passages from the text. Beginning in August 1991, these journals alternate between generous accounts of his gambling jaunts and the bizarre intrusions of fame: the interviewers, Hollywood glitterati, TV producers -- odd counterpoints to "the racetrack crowd ... the world brought down to size, life grinding against death and losing." Disarmingly candid, and salted with a particularly wry and gritty wisdom.
Kafka by David Zane Mairowitz ( Book )
15 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 450 libraries worldwide
Combines illustrated biographical details with a visual adaptation of some of the great Czech writer's works in a volume that includes graphic novel renditions of The Judgment, The Trial, The Castle, A Hunger Artist, and The Metamorphosis. Part illustrated biography, part comics adaptation, R. Crumb's Kafka is a vibrant biography that examines this Czech writer and his works in a way that a bland textbook never could! R. Crumb's Kafka goes far beyond being explication or popularization or survey it is a work of art in its own right, a very rare example of what happens when one very idiosyncratic artist absorbs another into his world view without obliterating the individuality of the absorbed one. Crumb's art is filled with Kafka's insurmountable neuroses. They are all there: Gregor Samsa's sister, the luscious Milena Jesenska, the Advocate's 'nurse' Leni, Olda and Frieda, and the ravishing Dora Diamant drawn in that mixture of self-command, tantalizing knowingness and sly sexuality that Amazonian randiness and thick-limbed physicality that is Crumb.
