Locked in the Arms of a Crazy Life is the acclaimed biography of Charles Bukowski, the hard-drinking barfly whose semi-autobiographical books about low-life America made him a cult figure across the globe. Extensive research and unique contributions from friends, family and associates - including Mickey Rourke, Harry Dean Stanton, Robert Crumb, Sean Penn, Norman Mailer and Allen Ginsberg - as well as personal photographs and drawings make this a must for all Bukowski devotees and new readers alike.
Howard Sounes was born in England in 1965 and currently lives in London. He has worked as a newspaper journalist in Britain and abroad and is the author of Fred & Rose, the best-selling book about the lives and crimes of mass murderers Fred and Rosemary West.
