The Town and the City: A Novel

'“A rough diamond of a book . . . the kind of novel that lets life lead where it will. More often than not, the depth and breadth of [Kerouac’s] vision triumphs decisively.” —The New York Times “An impressive first novel which handles the mosaic of large family life and relations with sensitive and calculated skill.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred reviewPraise for Jack Kerouac “Kerouac was a breath of fresh air when he came on the literary scene. He was also a force, a tragedy, a triumph, and an ongoing influence, and that influence is still with us.” —Norman Mailer on Desolation Angels “Each book by Jack Kerouac is unique, a telepathic diamond. With prose set in the middle of his mind, he reveals consciousness itself in all its syntactic elaboration, detailing the humorous emptiness of its elaboration, detailing the luminous emptiness of his own paranoiac confusion.” —Allen Ginsberg on Big Sur “Life is great, and few can put the zest and candor and sadness and humor of it on paper more interestingly than Kerouac.” —San Francisco Examiner on On the Road'
