Vanity of Duluoz: An Adventurous Education, 1935-46

Paperback

Price: $16.00

Overview

“Vanity of Duluoz” is a key volume in Jack Kerouac’s lifework, the series of autobiographical novels he referred to as “The Legend of Duluoz.” With the same tender humor and intoxicating wordplay he brought to his masterpieces “On the Road” and “The Dharma Bums,” Kerouac takes his alter ego from the football fields of small-town New England to the playing fields and classrooms of Horace Mann and Columbia, out to sea on a merchant freighter plying the sub-infested waters of the North Atlantic during World War II, and back to New York, where his friends are the writers who would one day become known as the Beat generation and where he publishes his first novel.

"A loud-mouthed novel . . . A frontal assault on life, a total abandonment to feeling." –The Guardian

"The capstone of one of the most extraordinary, influential, maddening, and ultimately prodigious achievements in recent literature." –John Clellan Holmes
