The Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac

  • $15.00


FIRST PAPERBACK EDITION [1978] DOUBLEDAY 

Book is in excellent condition. Minor shelf wear, and some tanning to pages.


Two ebullient young men search for Truth the Zen way: from marathon wine-drinking bouts, poetry jam sessions, and "yabyum" in San Francisco's Bohemia to solitude in the high Sierras and a vigil atop Desolation Peak in Washington State. Published just a year after On the Road put the Beat Generation on the map, The Dharma Bums is sparked by Kerouac's expansiveness, humor, and a contagious zest for life.
