Paseando con Mr. Bukowski
Si tienen US$ 55 que les sobre y están en Los Ángeles, pueden subirse a un busy tomar el Tour Bukowski que están promocionando en esta página y del que me entero gracias a The Elegant Variation. La promoción del tour abre el apetito diciendo que se enfocarán en las grandes pasiones de Bukowski:
(...) writing, screwing and Los Angeles. We’ll take in the canonical locations of his life and myth: the Postal Annex Terminal where he gathered the material for “Post Office,” the De Longpre apartment where he briefly experimented with marriage and fatherhood, one of his favorite bars and liquor stores, and many other spots. Along the way, we’ll explore the people and ideas that made up the warp and weft of Buk’s rich inner life. This Esotouric bus adventure is hosted by Richard Schave. "Haunts of a Dirty Old Man: Charles Bukowski's LA" spans Bukowski's personal city, from Skid Row to once-genteel Crown Hill, to Bukowski's favorite East Hollywood liquor store, the Pink Elephant. The tour also includes a stop at one of several bars notorious as Bukowski haunts.

In addition, the lucky attendee will also receive a free Bukbird beer coaster featuring Tony Millionaire's cartoon bluebird character, and a very special gift from City Lights Books, a pre-release copy of their Charles Bukowski anthology "Portions from a Wine-Stained Notebook: Uncollected Stories and Essays, 1944 - 1990." "Portions," to be published in September 2008, gathers many essential, uncollected pieces including his first and last short stories, and his first "Notes of a Dirty Old Man" column. Many of the writings have only appeared in 'zines, newspapers, chapbooks, and magazines. Additionally, "Bukowski - Born Into This" director John Dullaghan will be on the bus.
