Literary Hanks

Charles "Hank" Bukowski

"Interesting thing about Bukowski, they call him Hank, but his name is
Charles. Why not "Chuck" or "Charley"?  Reason: his semi auto-biographical
character was Henry Chinaski, and people tend to NOT see a distinct division
between the two."

- Michael P. McCullough - maintainer of the Charles Bukowski Homepage
