Q. Who is Charles Bukowski? Why would I want to read him, let alone proudly display an intellectual status symbol like the attractive bumper sticker you offer so inexpensively?

A. What! You've never heard of Charles Bukowski, revered poet, novelist, and quintessential American cultural icon? (Yes, yes; and major drunk. We know.) Start out by renting the excellent, moving documentary video, Born Into This. Then check out the links below. Also below is a list of his books. Order new books from Room of One’s Own.
