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.
Takes a unique sense of humor and inclination towards rauncy realistic storytelling.Published 14 days ago by Karl Pendergrass
Bukowski is amazing! This book is hilarious and so hard to put downPublished 19 days ago by Stephanie Hefner
This novel's so-called humor is laced with sadness and unpleasantness. Hopefully Bukowski's poetry is better than his fiction. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Scott Albin
