The Town And The City Ê Death and gripped by determination to write the Great American Novel he Town And The eBook #9734 draws largely on his own New England childhoo. I first tried to read Town and the City when I was 21 and I couldn't get into it because I wanted and expected it to be like On the Road and The Dharma Bums and his other Beat writings Now at the age of 34 I picked it up again to read and I fell in love with it There were times when I was wondering if I were truly reading Kerouac or not I haven't read any Thomas Wolfe so I can't relate on that level but this novel reminded me so much of East of Eden by John Steinbeck TC is such a wonderful family saga much like East of Eden and I have found as I've gotten older that I enjoy Kerouac's tales of growing up in Lowell versus his peripatetic novels that he's most famous for; however TC beautifully portrays the growing of a family in the small mill town of Galloway Massachusetts based on Lowell and how WWII and the aging of the eight children transform the Martin family which can be seen in a way as a microcosm of America of the early 20th Century Anyways I could probably go on and on about this novel but I won't but I will say this If you go to Goodread's page on On the Road you'll see a lot of readers who didn't like the book; I have half the notion to tell those people to read TC before they decide they don't like Kerouac as a writer because TC shows just how well Kerouac commanded the language and what a amazing storyteller he actually was free read Ù PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ò Jack Kerouac

Jack Kerouac ò 0 summary At coming of age The Town ePUB #8608 story which can be read as the essential prelude to his later classics Inspired by grief over his father's. I was not actually aware that this novel's characters were based on real life figures of the Beat generation until AFTER reading it That kind of put a different light on it to me While reading it unaware of the real idenitity of the characters I was impressed with his characterization of the difference's between the town and country the effects of WW2 on everyone and the apparent poverty alongside great wealth in New York Many of the characters in NY like Leon Levinsky and Will Dennison did not seem to be anything like cult figures writers or from the Beat generation ie in actuality Ginsberg and William S Burroughs but merely wayward eccentric figures but not terribly outstanding in any way except that they were disgruntled with the way things were and atypical of the generation gap However considering it was published in around 1950 the novel seemed suprisingly modern to me in 2010 The generation gap between youth and society could in fact have been any era up to now I also liked his take on how the war effected everyone at the time The after effects not often talked about and the crazy atomic disease theory Kerouac says Because of the objections of my early publishers I was not allowed to use the same personae names in each work 2Spoilers for those who don't knowReal life person Character nameJack Kerouac Peter MartinLeo Kerouac George MartinCaroline Kerouac Ruth and Elizabeth MartinGabrielle Kerouac Marguerite Courbet MartinGerard Kerouac Julian MartinGeorge GJ Apostolos Danny DJ MulverhillHenry Scotty Beaulieu Scotcho RouleauWilliam S Burroughs Will DennisonJoan Vollmer Mary DennisonMary Carney Mary GilhooleyLucien Carr Kenneth WoodBilly Chandler Tommy CampbellAllen Ginsberg Leon LevinskyHerbert Huncke JunkyDavid Kammerer Waldo MeisterEdie Parker Judie SmithSebastian Sammy Sampas Alex Panos
