INTRODUCTION BY RODDY DOYLE 'He brought everyone down to earth, even the angels' LEONARD COHEN Charles Bukowski is one of the greatest authors of the twentieth century. The autobiographical Ham on Rye is widely considered his finest novel. A classic of American literature, it offers powerful insight into his youth through the prism of his alter-ego Henry Chinaski, who grew up to be the legendary Hank Chinaski of Post Office and Factotum.

  1. Absurd men underhållande
    Benjamin Nilsson, 15 maj 2018

    Jag önskar att jag läst en bok av Bukowski tidigare. Bukowski är influerad av Hemingway, Dostojevskij, D.H. Lawrence mm och om man gillar de klassikerna har man en lite modernare version i just denna. Bukowski skriver nästan helt självbiografiskt förutom att huvudkaraktären har ett annat namn. Hans uppväxt var ganska absurd och det speglas i boken, men han har även en gnutta humor vilket lättar upp det tunga ämnet. Boken är absurd och ärlig, Bukowski spar inte på krutet men det är precis som man vill ha det.

Övrig information

Charles Bukowski is one of America's best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose, and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. At the forefront of American counter-culture, his Beat Generation writing is widely celebrated. He was born in Germany in 1920 to an American soldier father and a German mother and was brought to the United States at the age of three. He grew up in Los Angeles and lived there for the majority of his life. During his lifetime he published more than forty-five books, including novels such as Factotum and Post Office. He died in 1994 shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.
