Quotes & Awards

  • “There is certainly a raw power in these stories.”

    Los Angeles Times Book Review

  • “In his best work, Bukowski comes close to making us comprehend, if not the sense of it all, then at least its intensity. He cannot forget, and he will not let us forget, that every morning at 3 a.m. broken people lie ‘in their beds, trying in vain to sleep, and deserving that rest, if they could find it.’”

About the Author
Author Charles Bukowski

Charles Bukowski (1920–1994) was a German-born American poet, novelist, and short story writer. His writing was influenced by the social, cultural, and economic ambiance of his home city of Los Angeles. He published his first story at twenty-four and began writing poetry at thirty-five, publishing extensively in small literary magazines and small presses from the early 1940s through the early ’90s. The “King of the Underground,” he remained loyal to those small press editors who had first championed his work. During his life he wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories, and six novels, publishing over sixty books.
