Bukowski in Pictures is the first pictorial biography of Charles Bukowski, legendary author of classic books such as Post Office, Ham on Rye and Notes of a Dirty Old Man, and the subject of the Hollywood movie Barfly. Bukowski's picaresque life - as driven writer, heavy drinker, Hollywood celebrity, family man and unlikely Don Juan - is illustrated with approximately two hundred photographs, many of which are published here for the first time. Friends, family and lovers have contributed candid photographs, and there are powerful new portraits by leading photographers. Extracts from personal letters and rare documents offer new insights that delve behind the public persona. The end result is a fascinating life in pictures that is essential for all Bukowski fans.
