Ham On Rye

by Bukowski, Charles

Ham on Rye is a 1982 semi-autobiographical novel by American author and poet Charles Bukowski. Written in the first person, the novel follows Henry Chinaski, Bukowski’s thinly veiled alter ego, during his early years. Written in Bukowski’s characteristic crude, straightforward prose, the novel tells of his coming-of-age in Los Angeles during the Great Depression.
