About the Author

Biography

Charles Bukowski

Charles Bukowski is one of the 20th century’s best-known American 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.

During his lifetime, he published more than forty-five books of poetry and prose, including the novels Post Office, Factotum, Women, Ham on Rye, and Hollywood. Among his more recent books are the posthumous editions of Sifting Through the Madness for the Word, the Line, the Way; The Flash of Lightning Behind the Mountain; Slouching Toward Nirvana; and Come on In!

Henry Charles Bukowski, the Poet Laureate of Skid Row, died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.

CHARLES BUKOWSKI WAS MY FIRST INFLUENCE WHEN I BEGAN WRITING POETRY. I FOUND HIM IN MY LOCAL BOOKSTORE IN CHESTER N.J. WHILE DOING MY GROCERY SHOPPING AT NEARBY SHOPRITE. I WAS RIVITED TO A BOOK OF HIS POETRY AND READ THE WHOLE BOOK. I DO NOT REMEMBER WHICH OF HIS BOOKS IT WAS. BUT I WENT HOME WITH A PURCHASED COPY, AND READ IT AGAIN. THE NEXT DAY I SAT AT MY TYPER AND WROTE MY FIRST BATCH OF POEMS. I SENT THEM OUT TO POETRY EDITORS AND GOT MY FIRST ACCEPTANCE. MY CAREER SET OF LIKE A ROCKET-AND OVER 20 YEARS LATER I WAS STILL WRITING. DAVE PASSED AWAY THREE YEARS AGO, I WAS PROOFREADING A NOVEL ON THE DAY HE DIED. I PUT IT ASIDE FOR A LONG WHILE DURING A BOUT OF DEPRESSION.  NOW IT IS PUBLISHED ON AMAZON THE NAME IS “EEENIE MEENIE MINEE MOE” I AM BACK WRITING POEMS BUT ONLY SOMETIMES SEND THEM OUT WHEN SOMEONE ASKS ME. I AM FINISHING UP MY SECOND NOVEL ” NOODDY’S BAR & GRILL”

DOING MY BLOGS HAS REPLACED “ALPHA BEAT PRESS” WHICH WAS THE PRESS DAVE AND I HAD. THE BLOGGING IS GREAT FUN AND KEEPS ME OUT OF TROUBLE! ANA

  1. Thanks for this Hobo. Have you seen the film of Factotum? It stars Matt Dillon. It’s really funny and kind of sad. Although that depends on what your idea of success is…the character just does what he wants but his life is really a mess because of that…but he is making beautiful, profound art at the same time…

    • Hey Tom yes I have seen the movie but don’t remember it-will watch it again-I have a very bad memory due to being in a coma-will explain one day- so I must see many things over and over. Bukowski was my first influence for writing poetry-he was the coolest guy ever but a beat down man with drinking problems-my late husband and I published a book of his poetry-I do remember “Barfly” my favorite movie-I have seen it many times-have you seen it? Hobo 🍩🍩🍩

      • Wow you actually published him??!! I don’t think I’ve seen Barfly but it rings a bell. I did read something about your coma. I think you are doing marvelous work despite how great your difficulties must be 🙂 xx

      • Hey Tom yeah we published him- he was a regular contributor and we (my late hubby and myself) published a book of his poetry after he died. Do try and see barfly it’s such a cool movie and one of my favs. But it leaves me feeling really scuzzy after watching it-you’ll see! And thanks for the kind words hobo 🍩🍩xxx
