Of the Beats... Zendik was the furthest out...

Posted to What Are You Reading?




I read that book and it is pretty amazing I agree. Burroughs could string together images and feelings, and kerouac could type, but I'm a fan of writing that makes you feel like you're having the experience the author is describing, the guts of it, the coursing life of it in your own veins! I know a lot of people who say they are writers because they publish books - Beats are people who publish Life, and I admire the man who lived the life he wrote about in that book. "Quest" is a book I read about once a month, just to remind myself that there are two worlds - the one everyone I've ever met lives in, and the one we could be living in if we had that kind of guts...
