  • The Dharma Bums (Penguin Books) – Trade paperback (1971)
    by Jack Kerouac

    The Dharma Bums

    Trade paperback, Penguin Books
    1971
    English
    244 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.

Great Beat Reading

by bpc1644 on Apr 3, 2007

This is, in my opinion, Kerouac's best book. Dharma Bums follows a young group of beats around the emerging northern california scene. The introduction of the zen way of life and its different interpretations by different people is vey interesting. THe imagery Kerouac provides is beautiful, especially his time on Desolation Point. A must read for anyone interested in Kerouac or the Beats.
