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.".… (mere)

Who would win: the Beat generation or the crushing weight of reality? ( )
  Nealmaro | Jul 28, 2023 |
This is a worn down and haggard Jack, fighting to keep some of that idealism and spark alive, but well aware that he can't outrun fame, addiction, or myriad other demons eating away at his body and spirit.

For joyous, crackling prose, I prefer "Dharma Bums", but for a character study of what happens when a guy who delights in the simple joys gets caught up in the heat and confusion of being deigned king of an entire cultural movement, "Big Sur" is mighty compelling.

This book has a lot of beautifully descriptive language. It is a confession of the horrible aftermath of it all. Nearly a decade after the publication of Road, the author is a dysfunctional alcoholic struggling to cope with fame and preconceived notions people have of him. Big Sur is a freak book. It's many things and can be interpreted in many ways. ( )

I read On the Road as a teenager and thought it was great. Reread in my late twenties and became bored. Got inspired to read Big Sur because I had a brief trip out to California and wanted to read something (not too long) on the fight.

My take is that Kerouac may have had a little bit of talent, but more than that he had timing and personality. He wrote about a particular American idea first and with a personal style/look/attitude that sold well. That's not his fault, but Big Sur makes it feel like it was his downfall. He didn't want this much attention because he didn't have any big idea or really that much to say. The talent is pretty much gone (with the exception of a couple of good lines or jokes, but you'd feel like any hack could stumble onto given two-hundred pages), and all that remains is the alcoholic's psychosis and paranoia. I did think it was interesting at times as he explores how addiction pulls him away from what he knows he needs. It seems like the drinking in San Francisco or with old friends isn't even fun. There's no joy, just gut-rotting self-destruction. The last chapters feel a little like a bad acid trip--which is what I suppose you arrive at when you go on a decade long bender. ( )

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.
