About the book:
All the Feral Dogs of Los Angeles is a collaborative book of poetry from New Zealand born poet Benjamin Blake and US poet Cole Bauer bound in a simple trade paperback dos-a-dos style. These poems are full of life, death, dust, lust, and liquor. A drunken love-letter to the City of Fallen Angels. They pay homage to the poet laureate of Skid Row, Charles Bukowski, and provide an intimate portrait of writing and drinking, while struggling to make a living in Los Angeles.
