On the Road to Big Sur
Read Kerouac's On the Road first, then Lonesome Traveler, then Dharma Bums, then, finally, Big Sur. On the Road is merely the beginning. You must follow him West, all the way to the edge of it all. Big Sur is a sad and beautiful little book. A bit more adult and introspective. It is my current love.
