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 (1994).

Teenage Memories (49 person items)

" I was intrigued by the whole beat generation thing; Burroughs's, Kerouac, Ginsberg but reading that stuff I found to a lot of it to be so very middle-class and pretentious. Bukowski can be accused of many things but definitely not pretentious that's to be sure. That's what I liked about the guy, he wrote from the perspective of a working-class America so rarely glimpsed in that countries culture, though of course too white to be accused of as marginalised by the academics, elites and their"
