I've read two of his books(Ham on Rye & Post Office), and enjoyed both very much, if I could get myself to read more often I'd love to look into more of his works.

He had a way with words. Him and Kerouac are my two all-time favorites.

Those are both good, though I actually prefer both Factotum and Women as far as his novels go. His short stories and poetry are where it's really at.

wiki wrote:Bukowski and his work have been the subject of several films, such as his own autobiographical screenplay for the 1987 film Barfly. 2005 saw the release of the movie Factotum starring Matt Dillon; the movie is based on the novel of the same name, which centers on Henry Chinaski, the fictional alter-ego of Bukowski, as he struggles from one job to the next, all the while pursuing his true interests: booze, women and writing. In February 2007, it was announced that Gabor Csupo will be producing "How the Dead Love," an animated film that will use four of Bukowski's short stories. There are talks that Johnny Depp will voice the film's main character, and will also produce the film with Csupo via Depp's production company, Infinitum Nihil.

Bukowski's work has been used in the music of Tom Waits, Red Hot Chili Peppers, 311, U2, Modest Mouse, Buck 65 and The Good Life. Bukowski's book titles have been reused by bands including Hot Water Music and Thursday.

He is mentioned in the Red Hot Chili Peppers song, Mellowship Slinky In B Major on the album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik. He is also referenced in the Razorlight song "In the City" from the album Up All Night.

The New York based indie band red tennis shoes is titled after the Bukowski poem by the same name.

The punk band, Hot Water Music is named after one of Bukowski's works.

Legendary post punk group The Fall wrote a song called "Dr Bucks' Letter", thought to be a tribute to the American writer.[5]

Modest Mouse produced a song entitled "Bukowski" in their album Good News for People Who Love Bad News

Senses Fail produced an album entitled "Let It Enfold You", from the title of one of Bukowski's works.

A Bukowski quote appears in the booklet for the Propagandhi album "Potemkin City Limits".

A bar bearing his name opened in Boston some three years after his death, decorated in paintings and quotations from Bukowski and others. Specializing in rare beers from small-scale domestic and foreign breweries, it hosts a Dead Author's Club of mugs engraved with a patron's favorite dead author.

Punk band A Radio With Guts is named after a Bukowski poem.

His works were also referenced by UK hiphop artist Jehst in his track 'Alcoholic Author' from his 2001 album 'Return of the Drifter'.
