‘Dirty Old Man’ Charles Bukowski, a Late Novelist and Poet, Was Subject of FBI Scrutiny

Late novelist and poet Charles Bukowski was not ashamed to admit it – he was a “dirty old man.”

That caught the FBI’s attention, as did Bukowski’s potential ties to the underground press, reports the Los Angeles Times.

More than 100 pages of FBI files from 1968 show agents investigated Bukowski, a postal worker and notorious drunk, but had a hard time finding anything relevant.

The focus was on Bukowski’s recurring column, “Notes From a Dirty Old Man,” which ran in the underground newspaper Open City, a subject of FBI interest.
