The Dharma Bums
A story of the quest for truth, The Dharma Bums is one of Jack Kerouac's most powerful and influential novels. Two ebullient young men search for Dharma the Zen way, heading off to the high Sierras to seek the lesson of solitude. But in wildly Bohemian San Francisco, with its marathon drinking bouts, poetry jam sessions, and "yabyum" experiments, they find the ascetic route hard to follow. Full of brilliant descriptions of nature, a cast of refreshingly nave and sophisticated characters, and the classic wit and philosophy of Kerouac, The Dharma Bums is a heroic odyssey for the Beat generation.
