Ben Pleasants was a friend of Bukowski’s and part of a vibrant L.A. literary scene in the late ’70s. In the early ’70s, Pleasants asked Bukowski if he could be his biographer. Bukowski liked the idea. In time, that resulted in the tapings of a series of interviews, some of which Pleasants has made available to Malibu Magazine.
