The American writer Charles Bukowski (1920-94) developed a cult following for his simple and vivid poems, stories and novels based on his experiences as a hard-drinking postal worker in Los Angeles. His classic books include Post Office, Women and Love Is a Dog from Hell.

In this engrossing biography, studded with excerpts from Bukowski’s writing, Howard Sounes tells the true story of Bukowski’s life in the same punchy style as his subject. Sounes draws on interviews with all the significant people in Bukowski’s career, including celebrity friends Robert Crumb, Allen Ginsberg, Norman Mailer, Sean Penn and Mickey Rourke, who played Bukowski in the movie Barfly.

Bukowski’s editor and publisher, John Martin, praises the book: “Locked in the Arms of a Crazy Life is a generous tribute to Bukowski’s genius, and it clearly and truthfully captures the essence of Bukowski both as writer and man.”

Howard Sounes is known for writing detailed and revelatory biographies of a range of extraordinary personalities, including the murderers Fred and Rosemary West (Fred & Rose) and the musicians Bob Dylan (Down the Highway) and Lou Reed (Notes from the Velvet Underground).
