In 2008, the last two Charles Bukowski live readings were released as individual DVDs, There's Gonna Be a God Damned Riot in Here! (Bukowski Live in Vancouver, 1979) and The Last Straw (Bukowski Live in Redondo Beach California, 1980). The two readings are different in tone from one another, but both were raucous, confrontational events, much of the action coming between the poems. Therefore, rather than cull out the formal poems, we offer the readings intact, as they are meant to be experienced. The 2008 releases were edited to avoid duplicate poems, but in this special 30th anniversary edition, they are offered uncut, in their raw entirety.Three New Featurettes & Then Some: Bukowski at the Huntington-In 2006 Bukowski's wife, Linda Lee, donated a considerable Bukowski archive to the prestigious Huntington Library. We offer selections from Celebrating Bukowski, an event presented by the Huntington officially welcoming Bukowski's papers. Features talks, reminiscences and readings by admirers, friends and family, as well as an interview with Sue Hodson, Curator of Literary Manuscripts. Behind the Making of Bukowski: Born Into This- An in-depth interview with filmmaker John Dullaghan, director of the definitive Bukowski documentary, about the making of Born Into This. Also includes selections from the film including poems read by Bono; Tom Waits; and Bukowski's publisher, John Martin, reading Bukowski's last poem; and a poem read by John Dullaghan. Love, Bukowski, Selected Scenes - Performances of three Bukowski poems from the play as presented by the California Repertory Company as well as comments by Joanne Gordon, who conceived and directed Love, Bukowski, and was nominated for a 2005 LA Drama Critics Award for best adaptation.
