Portions of a Wine Stained Notebook stands out among Buk's great works. He approaches his essays with a forward style and grace—artfully written the way a tightrope walker eases his way from one end to the other. In one essay where he describes a poem written with symbols, he expresses how artistic writing does not always have to SAY something, rather it may speak with any form. In this volume, Buk shows his intellect. He writes from the heart—while never allowing the reader to know it.

Chinaski is freedom. His books are a constant inspiration. To do great art you must be completely uninhibited

I would LOVE to see a hardback version..You guys are a great publishing house and I have many of your titles I love my Buk books in soft and Hard back versions. As he becomes more and more popular, I think you will eventually regret not making a hard copy version now. Thanks, and keep at it guys!, you're great. Eric

Great news! The Buk community is awaiting this with much anticipation. Our only regret is that there does not appear to be a hardcover version of this. We sorely miss those beautiful Black Sparrow editions, and this would have assuaged us greatly.
