Charles Bukowski - Author


Charles Bukowski, who died in 1994, was the legendary Californian writer who became famous for his semi-autobiographical books about low-life America. Novels such as Factotum and Post Office made this one-time bum, and lifelong alcoholic, rich and famous, and culminated in the making of Barfly, a major Hollywood movie based on his life starring Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway.

If you like Charles Bukowski you might also like to read books by Hubert Selby, William Burroughs and Hunter S. Thompson.
