Big Sur
Big Sur

An interesting biography of what happens when fame and age taint the dream of being "on the road" in the life of this aspiring poet. The book details Kerouac's descent into alcoholism and hope for salvation. I think this is one of his greatest, most truthful novels. I know we fear the ages closer to death, but it is something we need to come to terms with.

—Recommended by Don, City Lights Books

A novel recounting the harrowing ravages of alcohol, as we meet the San Francisco poets and Dean Moriarty ten years after On the Road.
