Big Sur

Posted to WritersAndGenres

Hi - I read Big Sur right after I finished On The Road, and was struck (almost shocked) by the contrast. I felt like I had read the exciting beginning of someone's life and then skipped right to the despairing end. It was disturbing to read them back to back and I wondered about the middle. So, I keep reading... I've since read Darma Bums. Any other recommendations?
