lovely but depressing....

Posted to What Are You Reading?




I found Big Sur a bit dark and depressing,but still very deep and lovely.I read Maggie Cassidy a while ago and it struck me that his earlier work(Visions of Gerard,Orpheus emerged and Maggie Cassidy,even Dharma Bums or the subterraneans)is much more vivid and sparkling than his later work (Big Sur,Tristessa,Satori in Paris).Tell me what you think......
