This is a collection of his columns published in a newspaper in the late 60's. Allowed the freedom to write practically uncensored, Bukowski explores some surreal parts of his imagination.
Those who know his style will enjoy this immensley. If you're buying some Uncle Buk for the first time I would recommend any of the books I mentioned at the start.
The only reason I didnt give this 5 stars was because a small minority of the pieces were just too surreal for me. It was still a fantastic read and some contemporary writers would do well to read some of this mans work.
Don't forget that for this price you won't be getting a pretty looking format either - although that cheap formatting makes it even more Bukowski...
a great read by one of the best dirty old men around.
As always, you get an interesting glimpse in to the life of the alcoholic poet, and it features all of the usual plots and themes - Bukowski sits around, has a couple of drinks and heads down to the racetracks, or converses with the old-timers in the bars. Ever the Barfly, right?
It comes recommended from me, but mainly for Bukowski addicts who can't get enough - it's not as easily digestible as some of his other novels, although all are still a pleasure to read. I just want you to fall in love with his work, and the best way to do that is to read something like Ham On Rye, which will really blow your mind.

I guess you need to be in the right frame of mind to get the most out of this collection. Personally I prefer his more coherent works such as Post Office, Women, Ham on Rye...Published 7 days ago by Katy
I ordered the book on line and it arrived 3 days later. It was well packagedf and un damaged.
The book was a gift to my son and he has told me that he is very happy with it
I love Hank's writings, but this is pitiful. The stories read like something found down the back of his sofa. Avoid.Published on 17 Mar. 2014 by Mexile
