Big Sur

Big Sur - Jack Kerouac, Aram Saroyan Is a great book. I saw similarities with The Dharma Bums, but Jack had changed a lot. The narration had gotten a little less "beauty is everywhere." I live in southern Cali and traveled up the coast on a road trip and went to Big Sur. I even visited (couldn't go inside) the cabin on the cliff overlooking the ocean in which Kerouac himself wrote this novel! My, was it gorgeous! I could totally imagine him sitting there in the beautiful isolation and writing. If you like Kerouac I suggest you read this book.
