From the Publisher:

In this haunting novel of intensely felt adolescence, Jack Duluoz is a French Canadian boy growing up, like Jack Kerouac himself did, in the dingy factory town of Lowell, Massachusetts. Doctor Sax, with his flowing cape, slouchy 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 essence of his boyhood in Lowell as he relates Jack's adventures with the cryptic phantom.

 

En esta inolvidable novela sobre la adolescencia profundamente sentida, Jack Duluoz es un niño francocanadiense criándose, como el mismo Jack Kerouac lo hizo, en el sucio pueblo industrial de Lowell, Massachusetts. El doctor Sax, con su capa fluida, su sombrero desgarbado y su mirada insinuante, es el jefe de los múltiples fantasmas y demonios que pueblan el mundo fantástico de Jack. Hábilmente mezclando los recuerdos con los sueños, Kerouac capta la esencia de su propia niñez en Lowell mientras que relata las aventuras de Jack con el fantasma críptico.

Author Bio
Jack Kerouac
Jack Kerouac was born Jean-Louis Lebrid de Kerouac in Lowell, Massachusetts. He was raised a Catholic and spoke only French until he was five or six years old. He began to write when he was very young, publishing his own sports newspaper for his friends. After attending the Horace Mann School for Boys in New York City (where he was a scholarship student and a football star) and Columbia University (through sophomore year), Kerouac worked as a railroad brakeman and a fire lookout, and later joined the Merchant Marines and then the Navy. He married three times and had a daughter, Janet Michelle, also a writer. In three weeks, in his West 20th Street apartment, he wrote ON THE ROAD, his best-known novel, on rolls of Teletype paper pasted together; however, contrary to myth, the novel was the result of extensive previous planning and drafts. Kerouac is most famous as the chief figure among the writers known as the Beat Generation. His writing sparked heated debate among critics, some decrying his sloppy prose and lack of cohesive plot, others praising his verbal spontaneity and exuberance. Kerouac died of alcoholism at the age of 47.
