My Winter Reading List

Here’s my winter reading list: Visions of Gerard, Doctor Sax, Tristessa, Lonesome Traveler, all by Jack Kerouac whose prose has tasted good at all my ages so far. I started reading Kerouac at sixteen and will probably never be done. His old friend John Clellon Holmes thinks these are the books “in which his voice is most assured and his vision clearest.” Yum. This is going to be a treat. Doctor Sax is my favorite American novel of the last century. No, maybe it’s Visions of Gerard so gentle and kind.
