    Henry Chinaski

    CHARLES BUKOWSKI: The fictional character Henry Chinaski, created by poet Charles Bukowki, was largely auto-biographical. Although the films in which Chinaski is a character (mainly Barfly and Factotum) should not be viewed as always accurately depicting Bukowski's life, if you'd like to vote for Bukowski, vote for his alter-ego, Chinaski.
