Charles Bukowski documented the down-and-out literary landscape of Los Angeles, transforming everyday whores, gamblers, and alcoholics into dubious demigods and antiheroes. Once dubbed a "laureate of American lowlife" by Time magazine, Bukowski isolated himself from Beat-era contemporaries such as William Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, and Allen Ginsberg, but his version of America's downtrodden underbelly is a west-coast iteration of the now-emblematic postwar-era subculture. LA's own resident offbeat bus-tour company, Esotouric takes fans of Hank on a ride past the author's favorite haunts, from the Pink Elephant liquor store to his former apartment in Hollywood. It's a poetic journey full of rare insight into the life of a man who's come to represent the ghettoized contingency of the City of Angels.
