AUTHOR OF THE DAY: Charles Bukowski 
Henry Charles Bukowski was born on August 16, 1920 in Andernach, Germany. At the age of three, his family settled in California; they made a home in Los Angeles, which became one of his biggest sources of inspiration. He attended school at Los Angeles City College from 1939 to 1941, then moved to New York to pursue his career. His little success in publishing pushed him into a ten year battle with alcoholism and a resignation from writing, until it threatened his life. When he developed an ulcer, motivation to create struck again. To support his passion, Bukowski took miscellaneous jobs, including a truck driver, dishwasher, elevator operator, gas station attendant and more.
He focused on the grittiness of a poor man’s American lifestyle, intertwined with its hardships of alcoholism, relationships with women, and the grind of a nine to five job.
Bukowski’s writing portrayed a confessional style combined with dirty realism. His legacy lies in his fans, he is one of the most beloved and equally disliked American writers. Although there is nothing educational about Bukowski’s prose, it is undeniably relatable to the every day man. His intimate disclosures of suffering, unrequited love and sex made him extremely accessible and charming. His straightforwardly gritty approach is his weapon; he is an author you either “get” or cannot stand. You either find his choice in topics, sex, alcohol and poverty, either cliche or real. What you see is what you get, in this case. 
He began to write at the age of twenty-four, and explored poetry after the age of thirty-five. Bukowski published six novels  and over forty-five books in poetry. 
NOTABLE WORKS
Notes of a Dirty Old Man (1969)
Post Office (1971)

A love like that was a serious illness, an illness from which you never entirely recover.

—Charles Bukowski. (via wickedgaamees)

Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.

—Charles Bukowski (via amortizing)
