Description


In this haunting novel of intensely felt adolescence, Jack Duluoz is a French Canadian boy growing up, like Jack Kerouac himself did, in the dingy factory town of Lowell, Massachusetts. Doctor Sax, with his flowing cape, slouchy hat, and insinuating leer, is chief among the many ghosts and demons that populate Jack's fantasy world. Deftly mingling memory and dream, Kerouac captures the essence of his boyhood in Lowell as he relates Jack's adventures with the cryptic phantom. "En esta inolvidable novela sobre la adolescencia profundamente sentida, Jack Duluoz es un nino francocanadiense criandose, como el mismo Jack Kerouac lo hizo, en el sucio pueblo industrial de Lowell, Massachusetts. El doctor Sax, con su capa fluida, su sombrero desgarbado y su mirada insinuante, es el jefe de los multiples fantasmas y demonios que pueblan el mundo fantastico de Jack. Habilmente mezclando los recuerdos con los suenos, Kerouac capta la esencia de su propia ninez en Lowell mientras que relata las aventuras de Jack con el fantasma criptico.
