Creator: Charles Bukowski
Charles Bukowski was a German-American novelist and poet. The bulk of his writing focuses on his everyday life as a working-class alcoholic in Los Angeles. Even though his work is minimalistic and often crude, he created many a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming, such as his poems "Bluebird," "Nirvana," and "Dinosauria, We," as well as a few of the stories in Notes of a Dirty Old Man, a collection of short pieces which originally appeared as a column in two local underground newspapers. He was also the author of the screenplay to Coppola's Barfly. Bukowski died in 1994 at the age of 73.
