Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE------------------THE SUBTERRANEANS by Jack Kerouac.
The Subterraneans haunt the bars and clubs of San Francisco, surviving on a diet
of booze and benzedrine, Proust and Verlaine. Living amongst them is Leo, an
aspiring writer, and Mardou, half-Indian, half-Negro, beautiful and neurotic.
Their bitter-sweet and ill-starred love affair sees Kerouac at his most
evocative. Many regard this as being Kerouac's most touching and tender book.
"The first clear development of the American Romantic prose since Hemingway,
Kerouac's writing is full of mad sex, comedy, widescreen travel writing, and
long lyrical evocations of American childhood and adolescent memories."-The
"Kerouac's work represents the most extensive
experiment in language and literary form undertaken by an American writer of
his generation."-Ann Douglas
"Each book by Kerouac is unique, a
telepathic discord. Such rich, natural writing is nonpareil in the later
twentieth century."-Allen Ginsberg
"An outsider in America, Jack Kerouac
was a true original."-Ann Charters
