At the age of 3, Charles Bukowski was brought to the United States from Germany. He was reared in Los Angeles, where he lived for most of his life. Writing in an unflinching, bare-bones style, the tough, hard-drinking, hard-living Bukowski published over 45 books of poetry and prose in his lifetime but remained a literary outsider whose work was available only through small presses. His alter ego in the books, Henry Chinaski, is a tough, hard-drinking, hard-living womanizer, who hangs out with the lowlifes and criminals, with occasional flings in high society. The 1987 film BARFLY, starring Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway, was based on Bukowski's life.
