The Legend of Bukowski and his fictional counterpart Chinanski often out shined what made him famous in the first place - his writing. Known as “The Laureate of the American Lowlife” Bukowski drew from his personal experience. His thousands of poems and hundreds of stories call on a unique lexicon of lower class life to capture stories of love, life and dead end jobs – all punctuated with broken bottles and broken hearts.
August 16th would have been Buk’s 92nd birthday. On August 18th Fleur de Lethal Cinematheque celebrates with a night of ribald revelry. The night will play host to readings and writings by local luminaries, rare Bukowski footage and a one night only screening of “Barfly” ( screenplay written by Bukowski, based on his early stories) starring Mickey Rourke and Faye Duniway.
