To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Charles Bukowski’s passing, we are raffling off a copy of the author’s 1978 novel Women, along with a lucky 7 of diamonds Pabst beer cap found outside Buk’s favorite liquor store — the Pink Elephant at Western and Franklin in Los Angeles. 

If you’d like your name entered into the drawing, just send an email with your contact info to with WOMEN in the subject line. We’ll pick a name from the hat on Sunday, March 9, 2014.

Stay tuned for a week of giveaways as we count down to the 20th Anniversary of Hank’s departure and pay tribute to the great writer!

BACK STORY: I found the lucky Buk beer cap on Saturday, July 13, 2013, when I hopped onboard the Esotouric bus tour entitled, Haunts of a Dirty Old Man: Charles Bukowski’s Los Angeles.” The story of this fun and informative tour appears in the Silver Birch Press Bukowski Anthology.
