Carlos Polimeni. Illustrated by Miguel Repiso.
Bukowski lived an unorthodox, idiosyncratic life
and wrote in a style that was unique—a style
that is impossible to classify or categorize. His
work was at times cynical or humorous, but was
always brilliant and challenging. He began writing
at the age of 40 and published 45 books, six of
them novels. Along with Raymond Chandler,
he is considered one of the great voices of Los
Angeles. In Bukowski For Beginners, playwright
Carlos Polimeni evaluates the life and literary
achievements of the cult writer whose voice
of dissidence an discontent is still heard and
appreciated by readers worldwide.
