Happy 93rd Birthday, Bukowski

If you enjoy reading Electric Literature, join our mailing list! We’ll send you the best of EL each week, and you’ll be the first to know about upcoming submissions periods and virtual events.

Today, Charles Bukowski would be 93 years-old. Given his reputation for vice, one can only imagine how he’d celebrate (and it is really fun to imagine). HarperCollins is celebrating with a whole mess of Bukowski audio books.

You can listen to a little Ham on Rye, narrated by Christian Baskous, below. Find the rest (and more, including discounted eBooks) at the HarperCollins tribute page.
