Jack Kerouac died on the morning of Oct. 20, He was living with his mother in St. Petersburg, Fla., a city of senior citizens.

    He wrote this book on a scroll, for christ sakes—a book editor’s nightmare and a publisher’s delight. Kerouac’s success and cult following made his work a classic and his style, ironically. Throughout his life, Kerouac maintained that Gerard was a saint and idolized his Catholic piety and purity.

"A Kerouac Christ" is one of the most compulsively readable books I've read in a long time. I actually woke up early, couldn't sleep, so I picked up the book and started reading, that was at about eight this morning.

I just finished, and I wanted to tell everyone that I think Clint has really written something that people need to read.5/5(3). Jean-Louis Kerouac (/ ˈ k ɛr u æ k /), though he called himself Jean-Louis Lebris de Kérouac (Ma – Octo ), was an American novelist and poet of French-Canadian ancestry.

He is considered a literary iconoclast and, alongside William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, a pioneer of the Beat Generation. Kerouac is recognized for his method of spontaneous prose.

Clint Gaige has written a very memorable book in "A A Kerouac Christ book Christ," and a difficult one. For one thing, there is an awful lot of internal dialogue and that's difficult to deal with because usually, when it comes to internal dialogue, a lot "gets lost in the translation," so to speak, but not here.5/5.

"Each book by Jack Kerouac is unique, a telepathic diamond.

With prose set in the middle of his mind, he reveals consciousness itself in all its syntatic elaboration, detailing the luminous emptiness of his own paranoiac confusion.

If you actually want to like Jack Kerouac I would not recommend starting with On The Road. It's really kind of an unpleasant and unhappy book riddled with misery and cynicism. I would suggest starting with The Dharma Bums. I think it's the book everyone would like to believe On The Road is.

Kerouac’s childhood was a relatively happy one. He was raised in a French-Canadian household in Lowell, Massachusetts. Kerouac adored his mother, who instilled her devout Catholicism in her children, a faith which would remain with Kerouac, no matter how transmuted or.

In his book "Light My Fire: My Life with The Doors", Ray Manzarek (keyboard player of The Doors) wrote "I suppose if Jack Kerouac had never written On the Road, The Doors would never have existed."

Damn dirty self-indulgent over-rated hippie tripe. -High School Josh on Jack Kerouac's travelogue cum beat bible, On The Road. Jack Kerouac's seminal On The Road is considered one of the most important literary works of the 20th century.

Important because it defined a generation; seminal because everyone jizzed themselves over it. This book that had been often rumored and mentioned is now a reality.

We can finally hold it in our hands and read the words Kerouac wrote more than 40 years ago after his meditations in the Carolina woods, in Mexico City, Berkeley, San Francisco, Richmond Hill, Long Island and under the Brooklyn Bridge. The thread of Jack Kerouac’s literary and personal life in the American imagination might be unwound succinctly in the following terms: ambitious and fun-loving young man leaves behind his small.

He is considered a literary iconoclast and a pioneer of the Beat Generation. Thematically, his work covers topics such as Catholic Spirituality, jazz, promiscuity, Buddhism, drugs, poverty and travel.

He became an underground celebrity and a progenitor of the. Book of Sketches reads like a unique hybrid of poetry, prose, travelogue, and mind-graph. Somewhere between diary, verbal sketchbook and play-by-play account of whatever passed before his eyes, this collection of poems transcribed from notebooks Kerouac kept in his pocket between and turns out to rank with his most interesting work.5/5(1).

Reading Kerouac, I saw in living flesh all of the Cody Pomerays, Dean Moriartys, Sal Paradises, and Alvah Goldbooks in each and every sailor I bunked with, each and all from every corner of.

Another great novel by the master of Beat. In this book Kerouac takes us thru the town of Lowell, centering around Christ-like pneuma Sax as his tutelary spirit. Many biblical symbols often appear, somehow transforming the novel to holy scriptures.

When reading Dr. Sax I discover that writing can be comical and at the same time by: 4.
