Bukowski: Hate everyone when you are alone …

Henry Charles Bukowski was a German-born American poet, novelist, and short story writer.

In 1986 Time called Bukowski a “laureate of American lowlife”.
Regarding Bukowski’s enduring popular appeal, Adam Kirsch of The New Yorker wrote, “the secret of Bukowski’s appeal. . . [is that] he combines the confessional poet’s promise of intimacy with the larger-than-life aplomb of a pulp-fiction hero.”
