Bukowski’s Take on War

“There are no good wars or bad wars. The only thing bad about a war is to lose it. All wars have been fought for a so-called good Cause on both sides. But only the victor’s Cause becomes history’s Noble Cause. It’s not a matter of who is right or who is wrong, it’s a matter of who has the best generals and the better army.”

And…

“I have noticed that both in the very poor and very rich extremes of society the mad were often allowed to mingle freely.”

Ham on Rye is a blunt and crude commentary on class masquerading as an auto-biographical character study. It bursts with self-destruction, nihilism, rationalizations, and vulgarity. I devoured every page.
