Posted to What Are You Reading?

Though Big Sur was written at a time when Kerouac was in his 'alcoholic' plain of existence when he was writing the book, I often find myself recalling or 'requoting' words that I read within this book. Sure, the book is deeper in 'sadness' levels, but in reality, it felt more authentic. Maybe it's because I read the books in some chronological order from T&C, Maggie, OTR, to Big Sur and Desolation Angels....
