The Dharma Bums: (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

Introduction by: Anne Douglas
Illustrator: Jason

Paperback

Price: $18.00

Overview

Two ebullient young men search for Truth the Zen way: from marathon wine-drinking bouts, poetry jam sessions, and “yabyum” in San Francisco’s Bohemia to solitude in the high Sierras and a vigil atop Desolation Peak in Washington State. Published just a year after “On the Road” put the Beat Generation on the map, “The Dharma Bums” is sparked by Kerouac’s expansiveness, humor, and a contagious zest for life.

Reviews
In [On the Road] Kerouac's heroes were sensation seekers; now they are seekers after truth . . . the novel often attains a beautiful dignity, and builds towards a moving climax.
The Chicago Tribune

In his often brilliant descriptions of nature one is aware of exhilarating power and originality . . . the entire cast of characters is presented with that not unrefreshing blend of naivete and sophistication that seems to be this author's forte.
The New York Times Book Review

Full of sparkling descritions of landscape and weather, light falling through trees, the smell of snow, the motion of animals . . . Jack Kerouac is a writer who cannot be charged with dullness.
The Atlantic
