'The piteousness of his little soft shroud of hair falling down his brow and swept aside by the hand over blue serious eyes' Described by Kerouac as 'my most serious sad and true book', Visions of Gerard forms the first volume of his memoir cycle the 'Duluoz Legend'. Based on Jack Kerouac's memories of the beloved older brother who died when he was a boy, it is unique among his novels for its dreamlike evocation of the sensations of childhood - its wisdom, anguish, intensity, innocence, joy and pain. It is a haunting exploration of the precariousness of existence. 'Called a "pain-tale" by Kerouac, it's the story of an almost divine, Buddha-like child wracked with sickness and suffering' Guardian

The Library of America's edition of the writings of Jack Kerouac opens with Visions of Cody, the ground-breaking work originally written in the early 1950s and published posthumously in 1972, in which Kerouac first treats the material later immortalised in On the Road. Visions of Gerard (1963) is a deeply moving meditation on Kerouac's older brother, who died at nine of rheumatic fever, and who for Kerouac became an emblem of saintliness. The intensely focused and harrowing Big Sur (1962) finds fictional alter ego Jack Duluoz returning to California to escape fame.

Ainsworth (Senior Conservation Research Fellow at the Metropolitan Museum of Art) examines the work of the great Bruges painter Gerard David (ca. 1455-1523), focusing on the motivating forces behind the startling changes in his work caused by shifting devotional practices, changing art markets, the accommodation of foreign art clients, and the evolving secular nature of painting demanded by the newly wealthy middle class in the early years of the 16th century. Illustrations, some 343 in all, include abundant comparative material, such as drawings and workshop copies, as well as 69 superb color reproductions.

"Kerouac was primarily a religious writer bent on testing and celebrating the profane depths and transcendent heights of experience and reporting both truly. Baptized and buried a Catholic, he was also heavily influenced by Buddhism, especially from 1954 until 1957 when he integrated traditional Eastern belief into several novels. Catholicism remained an essential force in his writing, but his study of Buddhism was serious and not solely in the service of his literary art."--BOOK JACKET.

In "On the Road" and other iconic works, Jack Kerouaccreated a quintessentially American voice and a revolutionaryprose style. This remarkable gathering ofpreviously unpublished writings reveals as neverbefore the extraordinary literary journey that led to hisphenomenal success a journey with deep roots inthe language and culture of Kerouac s French Canadianchildhood. Edited and published with unprecedented access tothe Kerouac archives, The Unknown Kerouac presentstwo lost novels, "The Night Is My Woman" and "Old Bullin the Bowery," which Kerouac wrote in French duringthe especially fruitful years of 1951 and 1952. Discoveredamong his papers in the mid-nineties, they havebeen translated into English for the first time by Jean-Christophe Cloutier, who incorporates Kerouac sown partial translations. Also included are two journals from the heart of thissame crucial period. In "Private Philologies, Riddles, and a Ten-Day Writing Log," Kerouac recounts a briefstay in Denver where he works on an early version of"On the Road," reads dime novels, and even rides in arodeo and shows him contemplating writers likeChaucer and Joyce and playing with riddles andetymologies. "Journal 1951," begun during a stay in aBronx VA hospital, charts, in ecstatic, moving, andself-revealing pages, the wave of insights and breakthroughsthat led Kerouac to the most singular transformationof American prose style since Hemingway. This landmark volume is rounded out with thememoir "Memory Babe," a poignant evocation of childhoodplay and reverie in a robust immigrant community, in which Kerouac uncannily retrieves and distillsthe subtlest sense impressions. And finally, in an interviewwith his longtime friend and fellow Beat JohnClellon Holmes and in the late fragment "Beat Spotlight"Kerouac reflects on his meteoric career and unlookedfor celebrity."
