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.

Laughed my a** off. Bukowski is poredictably hilarious and crass, but the excess of his banality allows us to catch a glimpse of the sublime.Published 28 days ago by Droid1980

I thought his first book might be a more tepid Bukowski, as he found his footing. I was wrong. Bukowski was fully realized from book one.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
