Description of this Book

This collection is based around Bukowski finishing work at the post office in the late 1960s and finishing the script for Barfly in 1980, by which time he was an international celebrity. All the facets of his life come through in these letters - to women, editors, his German translator, fellow novelists and poets. His major prose works such as Ham on Rye and Factotum find their first shapes here, and readers should enjoy his championing of literary heroes like Celine and Fante, and his rubbishing of dry as dust fakers such as Stevens and Tate.

Author's Bio

Charles Bukowski 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 two. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for over fifty years. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp. Abel Debritto, a former Fulbright scholar and current Marie Curie fellow, works in the digital humanities. He is the author of Charles Bukowski, King of the Underground, and the editor of the Bukowski collections On Writing, On Cats, and On Love.
