Bukowski born into this by John Dullaghan ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

Factotum by Charles Bukowski ( Book )
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
Shakespeare never did this by Charles Bukowski ( Book )

An account of Charles Bukowski's 1978 European trip. In 1978, Europe was new territory for Bukowski holding the secrets of his own personal ancestry and origins. En route to his birthplace in Andernach, Germany, he is trailed by celebrity-hunters and paparazzi, appears drunk on French television, blows a small fortune at a Dusseldorf racetrack and stands in a Cologne Cathedral musing about life and death

The captain is out to lunch and the sailors have taken over the ship by Charles Bukowski ( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 5 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
Run with the hunted : a Charles Bukowski reader by Charles Bukowski ( Book )
4 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in Spanish and French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For five decades, Charles Bukowski's writing has depicted life on the edge with an unflinchingly mordant clarity that has earned him millions of devotees all over the world. Here is the first comprehensive collection of the best of Bukowski's autobiographical stories, novels, and poems, and it brings into razorsharp focus the counterculture idol's astonishing life and work. Bukowski's crisp, gritty, highly personal writing chronicles his spectacularly extreme life, with its mingling strings of odd jobs, unusual women, inspired debauches, matter-of-fact desperation, and literary triumphs. Run with the Hunted weaves these strings together in a manner that is as appropriate for Bukowski's work as it is unusual for an anthology. It is arranged chronologically, not by its contents' original publication dates but by the period in Bukowski's life that each entry covers. As such, it transcends the realm of anthology and becomes something very like Bukowski's memoir. Beginning with his first recollection of consciousness (as a toddler under a table in 1922) and culminating with wry septuagenarian reflections, Run with the Hunted is packed with dispassionately eloquent accounts of his hard life - from brutal childhood to reluctant stardom - and crystalline observations of life at large. Compiled by John Martin, Bukowski's longtime friend and editor, this landmark volume distills the essence of a prodigious life's work and offers a sometimes harrowing, invariably exhilarating reading experience
