You may notice that every book is not listed here. We wanted to restrict the list to books that were readily available, so the ranking could serve as a sort of guide for new readers. You may also notice that you can't vote for most of the poetry collections published after Bukowski's death. Here's why.

The Most Beautiful Woman In Town And Other Stories and Tales Of Ordinary Madness were originally published as one volume in 1972; Erections, Ejaculations, Exhibitions And General Tales Of Ordinary Madness, that's why they are lumped together here.
