Coming down from his carefree youth and unwanted fame, Jack Kerouac undertakes a mature confrontation of some of his most troubling emotional issues: a burgeoning problem with alcoholism, addiction, fear, and insecurity. He dutifully records his ever-changing states of consciousness, which culminate in a powerful religious experience. Big Sur was written some time after Jack Kerouac's best-known works, following a visit to northern California and the first feelings of midlife crisis. Kerouac stayed for several weeks in a cabin in Big Sur, California, and with friends in San Francisco. Upon returning home, he wrote this account in a two-week period. Critic Richard Meltzer referred to Big Sur as Kerouac's 'masterpiece, and one of the great, great works of the English language.'… (mer)

What I learned - Beat stuff is not for me. ( )
  jlweiss | Apr 23, 2021 |
I read "On The Road" about ten years ago, at a time in my life when I really connected with the style and what the characters were going through. Now I'm close to the same age Kerouac was when the events of "Big Sur" took place, and I hoped to similarly connect with this one. There were definitely points that I strongly related to, particularly with how he struggled with drinking while around his friends even though he was clearly happier getting off the sauce and tending to his writing. However, there were also sections in the first half of the book that felt too much like "On The Road" in terms of the narration and attitude, not quite grown out of romanticizing his own career choice. The prose is quite messy in spots, but every few pages you get a gem of a phrase that cuts right to an experience in a way I'd never seen before, and the last third of the book had real drama. All I can say after finishing it is that I am very happy I quit drinking several years ago. Also, I'm not sure if it's included in every version of the book, but "Sea," the poem at the end, totally sucks. ( )

A story of fame and the excess as frenetic and tumultuous as the waves that crash into the shores of Big Sur, all written in Jack's mad fast paced poetic style. ( )

A sad book, the last big one before he faded into alcoholic oblivion. As Ann Charters said at the end of her Kerouac biography the young Jack will always be waiting in the pages of "On the Road" for the reader to jump in a car with him and Neal Cassidy for a road trip out west. ( )
  JoeHamilton | Jul 21, 2020 |
An amazing journey of self-discovery amidst the backdrop of California. Kerouac embarks on a wild romp through his own mind, his philosophies, hallucinations, drunkenness, and everything else while incorporating intimate passages about his life, and his understanding, of the world around him. This is another revealing painting of the artist and is peppered by fine prose (and even a poem at the finish.)

4 stars! ( )

The church is blowing a sad windblown 'Kathleen' on the bells in the skid row slums as I wake up all woebegone and goopy, groaning from another drinking bout and groaning most of all because I'd ruined my 'secret return' to San Francisco by getting silly drunk while hiding in the alleys with bums and then marching forth into North Beach to see everybody altho Lorenz Monsanto and I'd exchanged huge letters outlining how I would sneak in quietly, call him on the phone using a code name lie Adam Yulch or Lalagy Pulvertaft (also writers) and then he would secretly drive me to his cabin in the Big Sur woods where I would be alone and undisturbed for six weeks just chopping wood, drawing water, writing, sleeping, hiking, etc., etc.
