Charles Bukowski is one of America's best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose, and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in Andernach, Germany, and raised in Los Angeles, where he lived for fifty years. He published his first story in 1944, when he was twenty-four, and began writing poetry at the age of thirty-five. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.
They say the best experience a reader can have is to enter the mind of a brilliant writer and follow along. It's different with Bukowski. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Peter Sills

He hadn't yet found his voice but you can see it coming. If you like Bukowski it's definitely worth reading. He tries to be too lyrical and too much like other poets. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Paraducks
