Charles "Hank" Bukowski, Los Angeles-based poet, novelist and counterculture icon, succumbed to leukemia at age 73, on March 9, 1994. Written off by critics as a drunken blowhard, his work was a slashing rebuke to polite academic formalism, cutting through the labyrinthine indulgent difficulty of much modern verse; his poems are poems anyone can understand. The self-proclaimed "dirty old man" profiled by this film, was possibly a misunderstood romantic, and defiantly a major American poet. With rare footage, photos, readings, and interviews with friends, ex-lovers, and celebrity admirers, the film paints a straightforward introductory portrait of Bukowski, the patron saint of skid row poetry

In a world where his three true, bitter pleasures are women, booze, and racetrack betting, he somehow drags his hangover out of bed every morning to lug waterlogged mailbags up mud-soaked mountains, outsmart vicious guard dogs, and pray to survive the day-to-day trials of sadistic bosses and certifiable co-workers

10 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in 8 languages and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Synopsis: One of Charles Bukowski's best, this beer-soaked, deliciously degenerate novel follows the wanderings of aspiring writer Henry Chinaski across World War II-era America. Deferred from military service, Chinaski travels from city to city, moving listlessly from one odd job to another, always needing money but never badly enough to keep a job. His day-to-day existence spirals into an endless litany of pathetic whores, sordid rooms, dreary embraces, and drunken brawls, as he makes his bitter, brilliant way from one drink to the next. Charles Bukowski's posthumous legend continues to grow. Factotum is a masterfully vivid evocation of slow-paced, low-life urbanity and alcoholism, and an excellent introduction to the fictional world of Charles Bukowski

The captain is out to lunch and the sailors have taken over the ship by Charles Bukowski( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in 6 languages and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Journals, with illustrations by Robert Crumb. Raw, iconoclastic, by turns rueful and hilarious, these last journals by Charles Bukowski have found their perfect match: the brilliant, outrageous comic art of Robert Crumb who has provided a portrait of the author plus twelve striking full-page drawings illustrating select passages from the text. Beginning in August 1991, these journals alternate between generous accounts of his gambling jaunts and the bizarre intrusions of fame: the interviewers, Hollywood glitterati, TV producers -- odd counterpoints to "the racetrack crowd ... the world brought down to size, life grinding against death and losing." Disarmingly candid, and salted with a particularly wry and gritty wisdom
