Read full description of the books War All the Time:
I found this collection terribly easy to read, except for the fact that I kept wanting to stop and mark my favorites to make them easier to find in the future. (I had quite a few "favorites.") Bukowski's writing is funny, weary, hardened, and terribly poignant. He alternates without warning between gruff and heartbreaking and takes the reader for an emotional ride.
Holden Caulfield said, "What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it." I loved this idea when I first read The Catcher in the Rye. I don't feel like that often, though. And actually, in Bukowski's case, I'm pretty sure I *wouldn't* like him much if I were in the same room as him...but I sure as hell enjoy reading about him and what he's doing, probably because his poems also include his reactions to the world around him. He writes like he can't help but write, and I appreciate that. Now I've gotta check out some of his prose...
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.
