Kerouac's classic tale of Buddhist Enlightenment, on the road in Paris! In 'Satori in Paris' Jack Kerouac, a footloose American of French-Canadian parentage, voyages to France to seek the origins of his surname! But it is also, perhaps more than any of his other novels, a book about Kerouac's lifelong love affair with Eastern mysticism. While conversing with a cab driver he experiences, all of a sudden, a 'satori' -- the Japanese term for a 'sudden awakening'; the Enlightenment of Zen Buddhism. Or as Kerouac calls it, 'a kick in the eye!'
