A lot of people wonder, "Where am I?" It's a good question in general, but specifically, right now, you are on the doorstep of the world's premiere Charles Bukowski web site. You are probably here to see manuscripts or search for a poem or story. Maybe you are here to find spiritual enlightenment. We have that too.

It could very well be that you don't know why you're here. You heard a song or read a reference somewhere or saw a dance recital where some teenaged girls were interpreting a Bukowski work and you wondered, "Who could have inspired such a gripping work of art?"

His name was Charles Bukowski. American author, prolific poet, short story writer and novelist. He was born on August 16, 1920, and I hate to be the one to break it to you, but he died on March 9, 1994. If you wanted to write him a fan letter, you're too late.

It's ripe for exploring, this site, and if you want to know anything at all about Bukowski, this is the best place to find it. Enter. Your questions will be answered, your fears allayed. You will be made to feel normal, even though all indications are that you are not normal at all. Why else would you be here?
