Big Sur by Jack Kerouac

Big Sur chronicles the domino effect of Jack Kerouac’s fame after the events of On the Road and the Dharmabums. The book itself is brilliant as far as creative writing is concerned; nevertheless it gets very dark and hard to read as the book journals Kerouac’s descent in to insanity and alcoholism. The hardest part to is you know that there is no escape for Jack as he struggles through his despair instead there is just a terrible conclusion.
5 Stars
