Happy Belated Birthday, Charles Bukowski
Charles Bukowski would have been 93 years old on August 16, 2013. I missed acknowledging his birthday on his birthday because I was away from my computer for a couple of days. What's Buk got to do with Jack Kerouac, you ask? Well, for one thing, they were of the same generation, with Buk being born in 1920 and Jack in 1922. I've mentioned Buk in a past posting (click here), and reviewed a book about him by Linda King (click here).
Buk wasn't associated with the Beat Generation writers, but many who like Beat literature appreciate his work for its nonconformity and directness.
So, Happy Belated Birthday to a favorite author: Charles Bukowski.
