I just became aware of Charles Bukowski after a friend of mine posted a Bukowski quote on Facebook. I googled who he was and found him to be pretty interesting and worth looking into further. I'll look forward to delving more into his work. Ed
Obvious to us here, and to you soon enough, the best Buk to read is all the Buk that was published in his lifetime. I think if one is a big enough fan one likes all his work in varying degrees. Post death published, what to read? Many would argue that most of it need not be read. There are many threads here that explain why. Here's somethin' from our most well informed moderator mjp: https://bukowskiforum.com/threads/t...st-by-john-martin’s-black-sparrow-press.7974/ Oh, and welcome.
