Charles Bukowsk is one of America's best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose, and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of three. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there 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. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
"precious grenades inside my skull,/ I'd rather grow roses than nurture self-pity,/ but sometimes it really begins to tell on me/ and I have visions of house trailers and/ hookers slipping into giant volcanic cracks/ just south of Santa Barbara."
