Charles Bukowsk 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 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of three. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there 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.

It's not my favorite Bukowski book. It's more of a cautionary tale. A manual for how to be a drunk and get fired from one job after another.Published 21 days ago by Jason D. Sands
This book left a good burpy aftertaste, that came up later. I watched the movie after I read it and thought it was pretty good too. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Bruce coggins
Bukowski. You either can go there or you can't. It is by no means "high-brow" but it is not unlike the down-and-out former industrial cities dotting the East Coast rivers... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Lowell B

Bukowski isnt for everyone. His prose is gritty to say the least. But there is something magic about his clean simple sentences. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Aaron Smith
