Read unlimited books and audiobooks on the web, iPad, iPhone and Android. Each book by Jack Kerouac is unique, a telepathic diamond. With prose set in the middle of his mind, he reveals consciousness itself in all its syntatic elaboration, detailing the luminous emptiness of his own paranoiac confusion. Such rich natural writing is nonpareil in later half XX century, a synthesis of Proust, Céline, Thomas Wolfe, Hemingway, Genet, Thelonius Monk, Basho, Charlie Parker, and Kerouac's own athletic sacred insight.

by. Jack Kerouac, Aram Saroyan (Foreword). Tristessa, you wily little book flighty as a cat, I should practice Satyagraha and resist my sinister urges to hoo haa your ever-loving Holy graces and wonder in the traces of your manna, all manna of manna, all eat-table and unbeatable and good and thirst-slaking, forsaking my faculties and reveling in the alacrity of all things, like you Mr. K.

Jack Kerouac eventually succumbed to the very alcoholism he deals with in this book, which makes the story even more pertinent, interesting, and ultimately, tragic. I grew up in the SF Bay Area as a kid and heard about beatniks in the late 1950's and early 1960's and have been to Big Sur and other locations mentioned in the book and I am just now starting to read Jack Kerouac. Big Sur is my second JK purchase. Definitely not Maynard G. Krebs.

Jack Kerouac was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, in 1922, the youngest of three children in a Franco-American family. He attended local Catholic and public schools and won a football scholarship to Columbia University in New York City, where he first met Neal Cassady, Allen Ginsberg, and William S. Burroughs. Tristessa, maybe Kerouac’s sly homage to Bonjour Tristesse (which had made Françoise Sagan a star overnight in 1955), is about his love affair with a Mexico City prostitute, and came out as an Avon paperback original.

"This entire short novel Tristessa's a narrative meditation studying a hen, a rooster, a dove, a cat, a chihuaha dog, family meat, and a ravishing, ravished junky lady, first in their crowded bedroom, then out to drunken streets, taco stands, & pads at dawn in Mexico City slums." —Allen Ginsberg

Kerouac is in full form in this "bop prosody" vision of the tragedy of love and the painful banality of loss. For such a short work (less than one hundred pages) he manages to spin an enthralling vision of a fleeting, passionate encounter in a world that has been poisoned. His characters, though only partially aware of it, oscillate between the two extremes of enlightened detachment and base addiction. For fans of Kerouac's more experimental moments, "Tristessa" will provide another satisfying feast.

Jack Kerouac describes his low-budget meanderings within the slums of the Prostitution and Drug Culture in 1950's Mexico City. His descriptions of the hovels that his "compadres" live in, is quite engrossing... it reminds me somewhat of the activities in the neighborhoods of modern-day Tijuana (short all the pets and chickens and so-forth)... I wouldn't recommend anyone attempt these same "feats" in modern-day Mexico City, as it has become a much more dangerous place for tourists over the last 50 years.

The fact that Kerouac is able to travel and live among the bohemian under-culture is one thing, but that he is able to describe it with his running dialog style on a typewriter is quite unique (a style that is something close to what I'd independently come up with at 14 in 1973, while capturing a dialog between a good friend and my sister on my Mom's old manual typewriter).

This was a short little book with some brief periods of truly lovely writing. The story isn't much to write home about and you won't be on the edge of your seat wishing for more. Worth the read, but it will not make it on my personal list of books everyone should read before they die.

Really weird, 2-part book. 1st half is written in flow-of-consciousnesses, non-gramatically-correct, poetical Kerouacian (jacked on morphine). The 2nd half is written in more-standard English.

I really enjoyed the book. It's a good trip.

A short tale by Kerouac, but quite fulfilling. Whether it is read in a quiet study room, a library - or in a taxi, drunk, on a rainy saturday nite (Jack would be proud!) There are many passages here reflecting his deep love for humanity (and any la gata) as well as searching the pale blue Mexican scenery, streets and bars, knowing something grande should be nearby...

A friend of mine suggested I read it. At first I was thinking that maybe I would not make it past a few pages of Jack's rambling, drunken prose, but it was addictive, like the very drugs his characters used. And while it was a different time and place, I knew his characters, they were people I knew on the streets of Tijuana and Juarez, junkies, prostitutes, pimps. It was sad and funny and sick and made me feel just a little more mad than I already am. I read it in stages, pauses, because I felt like I could be sucked up into his crazy little world and once again I would be on the streets of Juarez and Tijuana and now Mexico city...
