Doctor Sax and the Great World Snakeby Jack Kerouac, Richard Sala
An astonishing discovery was recently made among the Kerouac archives: that he had written a screenplay, a script for a motion picture based on his classic novel, Doctor Sax - the only known existing screenplay to have been written by one of America's most renown and influential authors. Kerouac's imagination runs wild in this screenplay, which cleverly combines child-like fantasies with true recollections of his childhood growing up in the industrial town of Lowell, Massachusetts in the 1930s. A time when things like the Merrimack River, abandoned buildings, religious memorials, and strange noises in the night ignited the unique talent of one of the great writers of the twentieth century.
Welcome to the world of 11-year-old Jacky Duluoz; a world of sinister plots, mischievous, youthful antics, underworld evildoers, colorful neighborhood characters and childhood chums.
Over 70 illustrations by Richard Sala, and includes audio readings by celebrated writers, poets and recording artists with an original music score by John Medeski.
