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.
Kerouac wrote this novel in 1952, five years before ON THE ROAD was published. It is, like his other works, highly autobiographical; it tells the story of Jack Duluoz, a French-Canadian boy coming of age in a New England mill town. Despite panning it almost universally, critics nevertheless found themselves acknowledging Kerouac's "peculiar genius," as David Dempsey put it in his New York Times review of May 3, 1959.
