This book has helped me approach the threat of so called Islamic State. I am grateful for its in depth analysis of the group's why and wherefore. Its detailed description of the historical development and the personal development of some of its key members.

Well chosen and excellently read extracts from each of the poets to illustrate the kind of poetry Alan likes best. He does not veer from the contentious, which is a good thing.

Enjoyed immensely. Inspired to read more, after blindly taking on the general picture of Bukowski as an untalented drunk misogynist.
