Its images are high contrast black and white, as in film noir (Charles Bukowski's favorite genre). Bukowski in the Bathtub is cinema verite on the page.Bukowski in the Bathtub is a portrait of Charles Bukowski by Beat Poet John Thomas. He was an intimate friend of Charles Bukowski between the years of 1965 through 1971. This book is based on the Thomas / Bukowski visits and conversations during that period.
