    1. Read this a long time ago, should probably read it again. I've read other Kerouac books and stories they seem to me to capture a life searching for something but embracing the moment as well.

    6. Kerouac is always a pleasure. I love Japhy Ryder! I still have the Subterraneans to read.

    8. Equally bad as "Eat Pray Love". Pretty much juvenile hullucinators playing with fancy foreign stuff. Not too different from Kipling's Kim. Orientalism seems to last forever.
