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 characteristically straightforward prose, the novel tells of his coming-of-age in Los Angeles during the Great Depression.

Bukowski war schon ein freakiger Typ. Das ist nun schon das zweite Buch, welches ich beim Lesen durchaus etwas abstoßend finde, mit gewissem zeitlichen Abstand dann aber doch zu schätzen weiß. Mein Freund wäre er in seiner Jugend sicher nicht gewesen, obschon vllt. eine Art Vorbild im Umgang mit dem 'Ernst des Lebens'.
