کتاب ساندویچ ژامبون

اثر چارلز بوکوفسکی از انتشارات نگاه - مترجم: علی امیر ریاحی-بهترین رمان ها

اولین چیزی که یادم می‌آید، مخفی بودن زیر چیزی‌ست. زیر یک میز. من پایه‌ی میز را می‌دیدم. پای آدم‌ها را، و بخشی از رومیزی را که آویزان بود. آن زیر تاریک بود و من آن زیر بودن را دوست داشتم. به گمانم در آلمان بودیم. و من یک یا دو سال بیشتر نداشتم. سال ۱۹۲۲. من زیر میز حس خوبی داشتم. و ظاهرا هیچ‌کس از بودن من در آن‌جا خبر نداشت

معرفی کتاب ساندویچ ژامبون از نگاه کاربران
عجیب نیست که آدم از شرح فلاکت‌های کسی لذت ببرد؟ شاید نه. اگر این شرح را چارلز بوکوفسکی نوشته باشد. و در خوانش شرح بدبختی‌های هنری چیناکسی حتا آدم خنده‌اش می‌گیرد، می‌خندد. البته اگر همه این اتفاقات در دنیای واقعیِ بوکوفسکی اتفاق افتاده باشند، چیزی شبیه کابوس است اما خواندن بی‌خیالی شخصیتی که خلق کرده، دیالوگ‌های بامزه‌اش و فضایی که در کل رمان ایجاد می‌کند به یک جور طنز سیاه شبیه می‌شود. هنری چیناسکی مرام و مسلک خودش را دارد، هیچکس جذبش نمی‌شود و در مقابل هیچ‌چیزی در دنیا برایش جذاب نیست. همیشه در فکر انتقام گرفتن است، از دنیا، از آدم‌های پولدار، از زندگی فقیرانه‌اش ولی هیچوقت جا نمی‌زند، هیچوقت واقعا جا نمی‌زند.
برای من این کتاب جز بهترین‌های بوکوفسکی است.

@بیش‌تر آدم‌ها در بیست‌وپنج سالگی تمام می‌شوند. و بعد تبدیل می‌شوند به ملتی بی‌شعور که رانندگی می‌کند، غذا می‌خورد، بچه‌دار می‌شود و هرکاری را به بدترین شکل‌اش انجام می‌دهد، مانند رای دادن به کاندیدای ریاست جمهوری‌ای که آن‌ها را یاد خودشان می‌اندازد. من دل‌بستگی نداشتم. به هیچ‌چیز دل‌بستگی نداشتم. حتی نمی‌دانستم چطور باید فرار کنم. بقیه دست‌کم حساب کار دست‌شان آمده بود که چطور زندگی کنند. آن‌ها ظاهراً چیزی را فهمیده بودند که من نفهمیده بودم. شاید چیزی در من کم بود[email protected]

I was sixteen, tan, blonde and good looking, catching waves on my yellow surfboard along with all the other surfers, handsome guys and beautiful gals, each and every day that summer. Little did I know this mini-heaven would quickly end and hell would begin in September. Why? My smooth-skinned tan face turned into an acne-filled mess. I suffered pimple by pimple for three years straight; many fat red pimples popping up every day. Oh, yeah, on my forehead, temples, cheeks, jaw, chin and nose. Unlike Charles Bukowski, my father never beat me as a kid but this was one thing I did have in common with Bukowski – being a teenager with a wicked case of acne. You can read all about his in this novel, Ham and Rye. Bukowski said, “The gods have really put a good shield over me man. I’ve been toughened up at the right time and the right [email protected] Maybe this was part of my own toughening up, those three teenage years of enduring the red face fire of acne.

Anyway, this is one of my connections with Bukowski, the king of the hill when it comes to American raw-boned, hard-boiled, tough-guy writers. And this novel of his years as a kid and teenager growing up in a house where he was continually beaten with a leather strap and receiving a torrent of emotional abuses, particularly at the hands of his callous, obsessive father, sets the stage for his alcoholic, hardscrabble adulthood, an adulthood where, other than drinking, his sole refuge from childhood memories of cruelty and his ongoing life on the down-and-out edge was sitting at his typewriter composing poetry and fiction.


Ham on Rye. Every single sentence of this book is clear, vivid, sharp and direct, as if the words were bullets shot from a 22 caliber rifle. Here are just a few rounds: ““Words weren’t dull, words were things that could make your mind hum. If you read them and let yourself feel the magic, you could live without pain, with hope, no matter what happened to you.” Again, “I didnt like anybody in that school. I think they knew that. I think thats why they disliked me. I didnt like the way they walked or looked or talked, but I didnt like my mother or father either. I still had the feeling of being surrounded by white empty space. There was always a slight nausea in my stomach.” And, again. “The best thing about the bedroom was the bed. I liked to stay in bed for hours, even during the day with covers pulled up to my chin. It was good in there, nothing ever occurred in there, no people, nothing.”

Ham on Rye. There are funny, belly-laughing scenes and scenes that will make you shudder, scenes that are tender and scenes filled with pain, but through it all, you will stick with Hank Chinaski aka Charles Bukowski, the ultimate tough-guy with the heart of a poet.

Δυο βράδια κράτησε αυτό το ταξίδι και είχα την πεποίθηση πως συζητώ αλλά περισσότερο ακούω με απόλυτο σεβασμό για τη ζωή ενός μοναχικού μου φίλου.

Τρομερή αμεσότητα και φοβερό ταλέντο προσήλωσης προς τον αποδέκτη των λόγων του.
Ακόμη κι αν δεν έχεις σκεφτεί ποτε τη δική του εκδοχή, την απαράλλαχτη γνώμη του ή την κοσμοθεωρία του σε σχέση με την ύπαρξη και την εξέλιξη του ανθρώπινου είδους στα σίγουρα θα πειστείς πως ο δικός του οίστρος προς την ματαιότητα ειναι τελικά ο πραγματικός.

Λυπήθηκα τους ανθρώπους και τη μιζέρια τους αλλά δεν ένιωσα καμία απολύτως θλίψη για τον αγαπημένο μου @φίλο@ μιας και μέσα από αυτήν την εξομολόγηση της δικής του ζωής όσο τραγικά, οδυνηρά, αστεία,τρυφερά και κυνικά ήταν ολα τα περιστατικά,ο ίδιος ήταν πάντα ο ελεύθερος πολιορκημένος, ο ασυμβίβαστα ενοχικός, ο κυνικός ονειροπόλος,ο σκληρός ιππότης, ο εραστής της ομορφιάς που περιτριγυρίζεται μόνο από ασχήμιες.


@....γιατί μια αλήθεια που σου τη λένε για πρώτη φορά μπορεί να ειναι πολύ αστεία. Όταν η αλήθεια κάποιου άλλου ειναι ίδια με τη δική σου την αλήθεια, και ειναι σαν να τη λέει αποκλειστικά σε εσένα,τότε ειναι μεγαλείο @.

Συστήνεται ανεπιφύλακτα.

Καλή ανάγνωση!!
Πολλούς ασπασμούς!

Up until recently, all I knew about Charles Bukowski was what I learned in one of my all time favorite films, ‘Barfly,’ staring the incomparable Mickey Rourke as our antihero Henry Chinaski. If you haven’t seen it, you should remedy that immediately: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrpTDa...

This is a world where everybodys gotta do something, gotta be something... sometimes I just get tired of thinking of all the things that I dont wanna do.. that I dont wanna be

***

Henry Chinaski is a bit of a dick. He doesn’t care about you, your causes, your morals, your dignity… he doesn’t give a shit about anything but Henry Chinaski. And I’m not even so sure about that…

I know it might sound odd coming from me, but I can totally relate to Henry. Don’t get me wrong, saying I can relate to Henry doesn’t mean that I approve of him and all his bravado, but I can relate. I can relate to his shitty childhood and his asociality and his lack of drive to “be somebody.” I’ll refrain from getting too personal here, but I can say that he can thank his lucky stars for one thing: he wasn’t born a girl.

Ham on Rye follows our dear Henry from a childhood scarred by abuse and isolation through the muddy waters of adolescence to young adulthood. He eschews mainstream culture and all that it stands for, and really, who can blame him? By the end, part of me wanted to forget about all of this ‘responsibility’ nonsense and join him at the bar. Why? Because f*ck you. That’s why.

Bukowski isn’t for everyone. Actually, let me go out on a limb here and say Bukowski isn’t for most people. But if you’ve been lucky enough to have struggled through childhood and adolescence and come out on the other end a little stronger, a little smarter, a little thicker skinned, then maybe, just maybe, Bukowski is for you.

Then again, maybe not. Im sure Bukowski doesnt give a shit either way, and honestly, neither do I.

I raise my glass to you, Henry. To you and all my frieeeeennnddds!!!!!!!!!!!(Barfly joke).

Watch this scene -- when Henry walks over to Wanda, look who he passes at the bar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5OLVi...

Wanda: I cant stand people. I hate them. Do you hate them?

Henry: No. But I seem to feel better when theyre not around...

Update: $1.99 Kindle special today --- Its not for everyone -- but I thought it was fantastic! -- I own it -- and couldnt pull away from it the first time I read it. Id suggest reading high and low reviews. Then trust your gut! Its based on a true story --but written as a novel.


@I had begun to dislike my father. He was always angry about something.
Wherever we went he got into arguments with people. But he didnt appear to frighten most people; they just stared at him, calmly, and he became more furious. If we ate out, which was seldom, he always found something wrong with the food and sometimes refuse to pay. @Theres flyshit in this whipped cream! What the hell kind of place is [email protected]
@Im sorry, sir, you neednt pay. Just [email protected]
@Ill leave, all right! But Ill be back! Ill burn this god-damned place down!

Yep, a real mensch of a father Henry Chinaski had.
From a very young age -- Henry was spoon [email protected] are seen and not to be [email protected] ( one of the more kind things that came out of his fathers mouth).

@Ham on [email protected] alternates between being hilarious and horrendous.
The beatings from his father were so awful -- that just saying @this kid survived physical abuse in his insane - crazy dysfunctional household is not enough...( I felt so angry)!!!
His father was fucking brutal. The son-of-a-bitch deserved to be locked up for life.

So? What was hilarious?
Having acne and a gutless submissive mother--who cant stand up for Henry or herself isnt funny....
but Henrys cynicism is often funny...
It was very funny ( and cute), when Henrys little classmate, Lila Jane, ( a pretty girl), was proud of her clean pink panties - or blue ones--wanted to offer afternoon show and tell for Henrys pleasure ....
however...this was the depression era in America ---Henry wasnt allowed to fulfill his other desires ... so he was often sexually frustrated. (not so funny)...but human.

The storytelling is wonderful ... It has everything...hitting us with a wide rage of emotions.
Terrific coming of age book involving family, school, other kids, teachers, struggles to survive --barely escaping poverty...Henrys anger, aloneness, rebelliousness, soooo much sadness it hurts....but also something beautiful was developing: Henrys love for literature. His time spent in the library reading D.H. Lawrence, Sinclair Lewis...etc.... He did that!!! Awwww and what a phenomenal writer Charles Bukowski is. Im aware this book is loosely based on his life story...but I read it as fiction!

The humanity in this book is extraordinary!!!!! I loved this book!!!!
