Kerouac's new novel is about two young men engaged in a passionate search for it. They are involved in a variety of explorations, both sacred and profane in the pagan groves of San Francisco's bohemian life. But fundamentally, Kerouac, spokesman of the Beat generation, is speaking for the young and questioning - those in re-action to traditional forms and habits who want to create new ones of their own.' (Quote from back cover blurb). ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Bookseller Inventory # 2228
