Jack Kerouac Romnibus

ISBN: 1573950025
New York, NY: Penguin Books, 1995. First Edition. CD-ROM. Sealed in shrink-wrap. The disc's centerpiece is the entire text of Kerouac's novel The Dharma Bums, thoroughly cross-referenced with maps, film footage, aural snippets of Charlie Parker performances, & much more. There's also a gallery of the author's paintings, readings from other novels, a wealth of moody black-and-white photos (taken by the likes of Allen Ginsberg and Carolyn Cassady), and an essay on the Beats by Ann Charters. Perhaps the most illuminating section is the archive of handwritten materials, running from Kerouac's diary entries to his recipe for ice cream, and including this sad note from his final years: 'I do nothing but drink and think....' An increasingly rare artifact from the early new-media era that has since accelerated toward encompassing & unifying everyone & everything. As new, still sealed in shrink-wrap. There is a vertical crease & small horizontal dent along the left side of the box. As New. [Item #1211]
