Description

The classic retelling of Kerouac’s last big road trip. Kerouac’s candid and definitive insider’s record of the key figures and events surrounding the Beat Generation, ‘Desolation Angels’ had gained a reputation as an underground classic long before publication in 1964. Told through the character of Kerouac’s fictional alter ego, Jack Duluoz, the novel follows the story of his last legendary road trip, accompanied by his thinly-disguised Beat counterparts, Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso and William Burroughs. From California to Mexico and on to opium-ridden Tangiers, Kerouac chronicles the frenetic parties, the drink and the drugs, the poetry and the mountain vigils with unsurpassable energy.
