The Sea is My Brother

(Storpocket)
Beskrivning:

'His first novel is a revelation ... the writing is vivid, serious and extraordinary ... wonderful' The Times

The Sea is My Brother is Jack Kerouac's very first novel, begun shortly after his tour as a merchant sailor in 1942. Lost during his lifetime, it is an intense portrait of friendship and brotherhood and a meditation on the desire to escape society, following the fortunes of two men as they impulsively decide to work their passage on the S.S. Westminster: drinking, arguing, playing cards, dodging torpedoes and contemplating the vast, terrible beauty of the sea. Published with fragments of early stories and letters, this visceral work gives a unique insight into the young Kerouac and the formation of his genius.

'What's clear from this newly published first novel is that Kerouac was positively fizzing with talent at an early age' Sunday Times
