Jack Kerouac gives free reign to the powers of his soaring imagination in this previously unpublished screenplay adaptation of his mystical, vision-novel Doctor Sax. Basing the haunting tale in true reflections of his 1930's childhood growing up in the industrial milltown of Lowell, Massachusetts. Kerouac spins out a dark cosmology as "concentrations of evil" gather -- vampires, gnomes, spiders, werewolves of the soul, "leerers at the glad heart of others" -- aspiring to destroy mankind. Doctor Sax -- alchemist of the night and friend of the children -- is the caped crusader who stands against the darkness.
Come along on an audio adventure, as young Jacky Duluoz leads you on an apocalyptic journey to confront the Wizard and the Great World Snake.
