Ham on Rye is a semi- autobiographical novel by American author and poet Charles Bukowski. The title may be a play on J. Salinger 's book The Catcher in the Rye , which is one of the most notable coming-of-age novels about American males. Both Bukowski and Salinger were first published professionally in the s in the literary magazine Story , edited by Whit Burnett.

However, Bukowski's admiration of John Fante also suggests that a phrase in Fante's Ask the Dust , "liverwurst on rye," may have inspired the title "Ham on Rye. Thus, Bukowski may be appropriating the insult and boldly declaring himself a ham writer fueled by rye whiskey. Still another possible interpretation is that Hank perceived himself as being sandwiched, or trapped, between his highly dysfunctional parents during his formative years. Like his previous works, Ham on Rye is set in Los Angeles where the author grew up.

Bukowski keeps his descriptions of his hometown grounded in reality, paying more attention to the people that make up Los Angeles than to the city itself.

This type of description does not venerate or idealize the city, a contrast to other so-called "Los Angeles Novels". The novel focuses on the protagonist, Henry Chinaski, between the years of and As the story progresses the reader follows his life through the school years and into young adulthood. Chinaski relates that he has an abusive father, and his mother does nothing to stop his father's abuse. She is, in fact, a victim of her husband's brutality as well. Henry is not athletic but wants to be and therefore tries hard to improve.

Football is difficult for him, but he enjoys the violence that comes with it. He has only slightly better results in baseball. As Chinaski progresses through grammar school, the focus of Henry's attention is on sports, violence, and girls. As Henry grinds his way through Junior High School, he discovers the manifold pleasures of alcohol and masturbation.

As Henry begins High School, his father, who is experiencing downward inter-generational socioeconomic mobility, makes him go to a private school where he fits in even less amongst all the well-heeled, spoiled rich kids with their flashy, colorful, convertible sports cars and beautiful girlfriends.

To make matters worse, Chinaski develops horrible acne so severe that he has to undergo painful, and mostly ineffective, treatments, essentially becoming a human guinea pig for various experiments thought up by his uninterested doctors.

The reader eventually follows Chinaski to college and reads of Henry's attempt to find a worthwhile occupation. Like his previous autobiographical novels, Ham on Rye centers on the life of Henry Chinaski, this time during his childhood and teenage years. Throughout the course of the novel, Bukowski develops his misanthropic anti-hero character that is seen in his other works like Post Office and Hollywood.

Chinaski, growing up poor in Los Angeles during the Great Depression, is shown developing into a sarcastic loner.

This stems in large part from his home life, in which he is beaten frequently often for no reason by his father. He becomes alienated from the children at school simply for somehow being different in a way that none of them could ever coherently articulate. The post-facto rationalizations they concoct for their hostility, however, involve his inability to play sports and his being viscerally revolted by cruelty to animals, the latter being one of the favorite past-times of neighborhood men and boys alike.

The grotesque-looking boils of his acne vulgaris will eventually turn their excuses for hating him into an ostracizing trifecta. Chinaski has been compared to both Frankenstein's monster and Kafka 's Gregor Samsa , because of his alienation and outcast resulting from his "monstrous" appearance.

However, he rarely is completely confident with his own abilities and often second-guesses himself. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For the unrelated film, see Ham on Rye film. Dewey Decimal.
