Today, Charles Bukowski would be 93 years-old. Given his reputation for vice, one can only imagine how he’d celebrate (and it is really fun to imagine). HarperCollins is celebrating with a whole mess of Bukowski audio books.

You can listen to a little Ham on Rye, narrated by Christian Baskous, below. Find the rest (and more, including discounted eBooks) at the HarperCollins tribute page.
