More renowned for his outrageous outbursts than anything he put on a page, Charles Bukowski is one of America's most misunderstood and under-appreciated writers. Charting his vexed re-lationships with women, employers, friends, colleagues and the tender mercies of the demon drink, "The Hunchback of East Hollywood "is the first book to study the writer's life and work in equal measure, focusing on the manner in which one impacted on the other. "The Hunchback of East Hollywood "gets inside the real Bukowski to deliver a full frontal assault on the publishing industry, and the most unlikely literary career in history. Also analyzes other works written about Bukowski over the years, up to and including Jean-Francois Duval's "Bukowski and the Beats,"
