About the Author

Jack Kerouac (1922-1969) was an American novelist, poet, and, with Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs, a central figure of the Beat Generation. He was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, of French-Canadian parents and briefly attended Columbia University before falling in with a group of friends that would eventually define a literary movement. Big Sur is considered by many critics to be his finest literary achievement.

Reviews

"Certainly Kerouac's grittiest novel to date and the one which will be read with most respect by those skeptical of all the Beat business in the first place."--The New York Times

"Kerouac's masterpiece, and one of the great, great works
of the English language."--Richard Meltzer

"A humane, precise account of the extraordinary ravages of alcohol delirium tremens on Kerouac, a superior novelist who had strength to complete his poetic narrative, a task few scribes so afflicted have accomplished. . . . Here at the peak of his suffering humorous genius he wrote through his misery to end with 'Sea, ' a brilliant poem."--Allen Ginsberg
