Interesting Points

Posted to What Are You Reading?




As far as "readabilty" goes Dharma might be a good choice, but what I like about talking to other people about Kerouac is the "level" of Kerouac's life they are interested in. I am very interested in the Dharma-Desolatiion period, but I find most people (most guys actually) get kind of "stuck" with OTR and the hit the road and meet women hero. This was an idea that Kerouac himself was very interested in for a long while, but I think his hero shifts eventually to Snyder. I still think OTR is the starting place.
