What People are Saying About This

John Clellon Holmes
Kerouac's work is one of the most extraordinary, influential, maddening, and ultimately prodigious achievements in recent literature.
Allen Ginsberg
Jack Kerouac, new Buddha of American prose, who spit forth intelligence...a spontaneous bop prosody and original classic literature.

We've all read On the Road, and we all savored it like candy. Here's a differrent side of Jack - dark and murky, but still outstanding. Actually, the title of one of the chapters describes the book rather well: 'A Gloomy Bookmovie'. Dr. Sax, a cryptic cloaked phantasm, confronts the forces of evil, all in the imagination of a boyhood Kerouac. This novel is a surreal departure from most of his other work. If you're going to read only one of his books, read On the Road. If you're going to read more than one, don't miss this one.
