Late May sees the arrival in LA of the BookExpo America publishing industry convention, and if you're a Bukowski fan, you'll want to attend. That's because only BEA badge holders who get on Esotouric's HAUNTS OF A DIRTY OLD MAN:CHARLES BUKOWSKI'S LA tour (departing from Arnie Morton's Steakhouse downtown on Saturday 5/31 at 5pm) will receive a special gift direct from City Lights Books: a limited edition, pre-release copy of their forthcoming anthology of unseen Buk writings, "Portions from a Wine-Stained Notebook: Uncollected Stories and Essays, 1944–1990." The book is not released until September, and these preview editions are very rare, so this is going to be quite the Buk collectable . And heck, we'll throw in a Tony Millionaire Bukbird beer coaster when you flash your BEA badge, too.
Step one, register for BEA (go on, it's fun!).
Step two, reserve your spot on the Buk tour:
Step three, make all your friends jealous when you have the new Buk anthology five months before its official release date!
