Première phrase
Gerard Duluoz was born in 1917 a sickly little kid with a rheumatic heart and many other complications that made him ill for the most part of his life which ended in July 1926, when he was 9, and the nuns of St. Louis de France Parochial School were at his bedside to take down his dying words because they'd heard his astonishing revelations of heaven delivered in catechism class on no more encouragement than that it was his turn to speak Lire la première page

How odd. 14 juin 2002
Par Angry Mofo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I'm not quite sure how to react. Yes, if you're reading this you already know that this is a book about Kerouac's older brother who died at age nine, but that doesn't do any kind of job of telling you what the book is like. Kerouac's style is so...odd. At times it is absolutely, maddeningly impenetrable. At others, it's absolutely beautiful. At others, you get the feeling of reading a first draft of who knows what. At others still, you get the feeling of reading a really beautiful poem with breathtaking imagery. And it never feels like artiness for the sake of self-indulgence. One thing is certain, though - there's a deep and undeniable sadness buried within this book, one that leaves quite a mark when one gets to it through all the barriers, language and others. "Like a load of rocks dumped from a truck onto a little kitty, the pitiful inescapability of death and the pain of death, and it will happen to the best and all and most beloved of us..." (67) I'm not sure what to make of the whole thing, in all honesty. I think I may have to read this book over again in order to go even deeper. In the meantime, you should read it.

Kerouac remembers his brother poetically 6 août 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Beautifully poetic, Kerouac remembers his brother, Gerard, who died when Kerouac was very young. Birds perch on window sills, while Gerard talks to them, contemplates the world, questions war and wonders why a God would allow anything to die. Kerouac pays homage in short beautiful chapters, which I read over and over again, before turning to the next one. Kerouac blends his Catholic upbringing, with his Buddhist adulthood, and makes one of the most uniquely poetic and religious novels of the 20th Century

THE BEAT BEGINS 28 juin 2001
Par Sesho - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is the earliest chapter in Kerouac's autobiography/novel series. It is a novel that celebrates childhood but not innocence. There is a sense that Kerouac believes, like William Blake, that innocence cannot truly exist on the plane of existence without being destroyed. His brother is portrayed as a Christ of sorts who touches everyone around him with an aura of goodness. As is usual with a Kerouac work, there is no summary that does justice to his novels. The problem with most of them is that the narrator is so prevalent that no other characters seem to develop or have a consciousness outside of his viewpoint. But this novel does not suffer from this weakness. For once he is focused on a character other than himself. With Kerouac, there also comes a paradoxical joy in life and also the sad knowledge that we all will die sooner or later. The only complaint I had about this book was that it was too short. But I guess the same can be said about life.

Kerouac's personal vulnerabilities come through 17 janvier 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've been a fan of Kerouac's work for years. This was perhaps the last of his books that I read. What struck me immediately was Jack's vulnerability, more pronounced than in any other of his works. This is the story of a childhood wronged by the passing of a loved sibling, and I could only sit and think of my own young life, and the death of one of my siblings whom I loved with all my heart. This speaks to anyone who knew the poignancy of pain while young. It is, on one side, a narrative of the causes behind one's own personal declines; on the other side, a prosaical examination of a boy's angelic regard for the kindness of his brother. I loved this book, just as I love all of Kerouac's works. But this single work seems to exemplify Jack's most beautiful side...

Un bel hommage 3 octobre 2003
Par Michael K. Gause - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
In this novel, written between ON THE ROAD and DHARMA BUMS, Thomas Wolfe's influence on Kerouac's style is keenly felt. Haunting elaborations on scene and setting, branching off into Beat perfect interior monologues are all arrows pointing to Gerard the Angel, Gerard the holy savant. Great, uniquely Kerouac scenes find Emil, the father, drinking with vaudeville buddies. These passages howl with card game hip flasks and midnight fire escapes, and provide a nice break from the weight of the loss everyone awaits. When it comes, we each have the heart that breaks. The novel ends abruptly, as it should, as if to illustrate how ill-prepared we all are facing the end. Kerouac's free jazz interpretation of Wolfe here seems the perfect style for his (almost) inexplicable loss. The "first draft" feel of passages are actually a strength in that they both exemplify Kerouac's unique flair and reach the reader as the disjointed thoughts and feelings that arise in the midst of suffering. We feel the pain in broken passages and the sometimes illogical structure, but Kerouac uses these in such a way as to actually heighten our experience of his tale. It is a gamble that the author, I believe, ultimately wins.
