From Press Release Newswire:
Fallbrook, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2008 -- Charles Bukowski's last two live poetry readings have just been released on DVD. The readings, considered performance art by many, were given in late 1979 in Vancouver, Canada and in early 1980 in Redondo Beach, California. They were captured on videotape but remained unreleased until now.
The late Charles Bukowski (1920 - 1994) recently had his books, manuscripts, and poems archived as a part of the permanent collection of the Huntington Library. His writing is brutally honest, not for the squeamish; its directness and unpretentious nature makes it accessible to those readers willing to face his raw and compassionate vision of the human condition.
His novels, short stories, and poems have been translated into many different languages and published around the world. His writing has also been adapted as major motion pictures (Barbet Shroeder's Barfly, Factotum, and Tales of Ordinary Madness). He was the subject of the 2004 documentary, Bukowski: Born Into This. But he was most notorious live, both onstage and off. ...the rest >>
