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 is a very easy to read book and flows quickly from begining to end (I read it in about 2 1/2 hours).
Everyone can understand being in a horrible job at one point in there life and he nails what it feels like to be stuck.
Bukowski's prose style is crude, rude, and raw; often very funny, sometimes shocking, and sometimes poignant.
I like his books. All is about real life. Honest. Funny. And sometime sad.Published 3 days ago by Oleg Zgursky

How can someone be eloquently rude and funny at the same time? It is a story of a journey spent at the post office and now I have an inclination to make this job application.Published 22 days ago by Dr. Benjamin Pei
