  • Septuagenarian Stew


Bukowski celebrates turning 70 with a collection of stories and poems about alcoholics, mad housewives, gamblers whose decaying lives slip uncontrollably away from them, just like the successful types Bukowski deals with here too. 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 Andernach, Germany, and raised in Los Angeles, where he lived 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 (1994).
