I have to say, that I really liked Pic. It's sweet and childich if u see it in the right way.Of course it's not on the same level as Road, Dharma Bums or Big sur, but it's good and the language is wonderful. Even Doctor Sax, that most critics think is unreadable, is actually good if u get into the spirit of it. For me, the most problematik of Kerouacs novels was Visions of Cody (unreadable). I also had big problems w. Visions of Gerald, but maybe because I had so high hopes on that. Btw, can anyone say what Desolation angles is about? Any good?
