"Life is great, and few can put the zest and wonder and sadness and humor of it on paper more interestingly than Kerouac." -Luther Nichols, San Francisco Examiner
Two ebullient young men search for Truth the Zen way: from marathon wine drinking bouts, poetry jam sessions, and "yabyum" in San Francisco's Bohemia to solitude in the high Sierras and a vigil atop Desolation Peak in Washington State. Published just a year after On the Road put the Beat Generation on the map, The Dharma Bums is sparked by Kerouac's expansiveness, humor, and a contagious zest for life.
"A descriptive excitement unmatched since the days of Thomas Wolfe." -The New York Review of Books
