One of the final works in Kerouac's 13-book Proustian memoir to join the Penguin Modern Classics.

Unique among Jack Kerouac's novels, Visions of Gerard focuses on the scenes and sensations of childhood - -the wisdom, anguish, intensity, innocence, evil, insight, suffering, delight, and shock -- as they were revealed in the short tragic-happy life of his saintly brother, Gerard.

Set in Kerouac's hometown of Lowell, Massachusetts, it is an unsettling, beautiful, and sad exploration of the meaning and precariousness of existence.
Industry Reviews
