About the book:

In this haunting novel of intensely felt adolescence, jack kerouac tells the story of jack duluoz, a french-canadian boy growing up, as kerouac himself did, in the dingy factory town of lowell, massachusetts. Dr. Sax, with his flowing cape, slouch hat, and insinuating leer, is chief among the many ghosts and demons that populate jack's fantasy world. Deftly mingling memory and dream, kerouac captures the accents and texture of his boyhood in lowell as he relates jack's adventures with this cryptic, apocalyptic hipster phantom. "kerouac dreams of america in the authentic rolling rhythms of a whitman or a thomas wolfe, drunk with eagerness for life." - john k. Hutchens; "kerouac's peculiar genius infects every page." - the new york times
