Read full description of the books:Bukowski n'a rien oublié : ni la violence, ni la douleur des premières années de sa vie. Il parle vrai et dur. Les coups reçus et donnés, les désespoirs d'un jeune homme laid qui n'a jamais la bonne «attitude», les mesquineries des petits débrouillards, la bouteille, la guerre qui se prépare et n'engloutira pas indistinctement tout le monde, tout cela est dit sans détour.
Le constat est effrayant, mais drôle : on sait rire aussi, que diable ! La machine à durer en verra bien d'autres, c'est évident. Les outrances, ici, ne sont, après tout, que celles de la vie elle-même. Et puis l'émerveillement n'est jamais loin, même derrière le souvenir de jeunesse le plus cruel. Chez Bukowski, le cœur est tendre, mais bien accroché.
Read information about the authorHenry Charles Bukowski (born as Heinrich Karl Bukowski) was a German-born American poet, novelist and short story writer. His writing was influenced by the social, cultural and economic ambience of his home city of Los Angeles.It is marked by an emphasis on the ordinary lives of poor Americans, the act of writing, alcohol, relationships with women and the drudgery of work. Bukowski wrote thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels, eventually publishing over sixty books
Charles Bukowski was the only child of an American soldier and a German mother. At the age of three, he came with his family to the United States and grew up in Los Angeles. He attended Los Angeles City College from 1939 to 1941, then left school and moved to New York City to become a writer. His lack of publishing success at this time caused him to give up writing in 1946 and spurred a ten-year stint of heavy drinking. After he developed a bleeding ulcer, he decided to take up writing again. He worked a wide range of jobs to support his writing, including dishwasher, truck driver and loader, mail carrier, guard, gas station attendant, stock boy, warehouse worker, shipping clerk, post office clerk, parking lot attendant, Red Cross orderly, and elevator operator. He also worked in a dog biscuit factory, a slaughterhouse, a cake and cookie factory, and he hung posters in New York City subways.
Bukowski published his first story when he was twenty-four and began writing poetry at the age of thirty-five. His first book of poetry was published in 1959; he went on to publish more than forty-five books of poetry and prose, including Pulp (1994), Screams from the Balcony (1993), and The Last Night of the Earth Poems (1992).
He died of leukemia in San Pedro on March 9, 1994.
