NPR's Fred Wasser profiles Charles Bukowski, the legendary and notorious poet. Bukowski's earthy, visceral writing — and lifestyle — brought him a devoted audience. Six years after his death in 1994, Bukowski remains popular, and a new edition of posthumous works are being published next month, under the title Open All Night. (Black Sparrow Press)
