'THE SUBTERRANEANS' WITH A PREFACE BY HENRY MILLER
'THEY ARE HIP WITHOUT BEING SLICK, THEY ARE INTELLIGENT WITHOUT BEING CORNY, THEY ARE INTELLECTUAL AS HELL WITHOUT BEING PRETENTIOUS, THEY ARE VERY QUIET, THEY ARE VERY CHRISTLIKE.'
The Subterraneans haunt the bars and clubs of San Francisco, surviving on a diet of booze and benzedrine, Proust and Verlaine. Living amongst them is Leo, an aspiring writer, and Mardou, half-Indian, half-Negro, beautiful and neurotic. Their bitter-sweet and ill-starred love affair sees Kerouac at his most evocative.
“Some say 'The Subterraneans' is Kerouac's best novel, it's so touching and tender. The love story of Leo and Mardou, sad and sweet, furious, implacable, inevitable – many writers have since tried to imitate it and failed.”
On the road but not yet overawed, ten-year-old Pic tells his story in the beautiful Negro dialect of the North Carolina farm country. Concise, original and moving, it stands as one of Kerouac's finest achievements.
“Kerouac's energy is contagious, his compassion and concern are the genuine homespun article.”
Many of Kerouac's works are available in Flamingo, including 'Big Sur, Doctor Sax' and 'Lonesome Traveler'.
