Ac whom Amburn the editor of his last two novels knew personally having witnessed the legendary Beat writer's decline into alcoholic despair during the last few years of his life Perhaps the greatest of Kerouac's conflicts centered around his sexual relationships with men Ambu It took me an eternity to finish this I really have no idea why I didn't just give up reading it all together stubbornness but there it sat on my self glaring at me to finish it Determined I would pick it up then toss it put it back on my self forget the feeling of frustration while reading it pick it up again start reading it where I booked marked it then continuously repeating the previous steps Hate not finishing what I started Painful read continuous eye rolling grunts of annoyance towards the author I felt that it was about the author's skewed agenda to force feed the reader Kerouac's homosexual desires the very detailed sexual experience were unnecessary almost like reading a porn novel in parts but not a good one The Author tossed in moments of hey I was a big deal too because I knew him and let me tell you every unimportant detail of conversations I had with Kerouac to prove I knew him better than anyone utter snobbery writing I felt like he was just writing this for total shock value and really didn't get to the heart of who Kerouac was Honestly no one will ever knowMaybe Kerouac was a total shit person who was an alcoholic racist womanizer anti Semitic homophobic who was secretly struggling with homosexual desires gross and disgusting individual who just was lucky to write beautifully BUT I don't need the authors obvious opinion swaying me or do I care for his personal feelings on Kerouac's words or actions OR what he thought or felt about him Just give me the facts man I really do hate myself for ever buying this book Just tells you never to read about the man behind the mask Just enjoy the best parts of them Their art writings or music Don't want to bask in the sludge of their life with them Made me want to start drinking just to get through the book so depressing Sad if this is the truth which means with all of Kerouac's experiences he didn't bother to reflect or learn from any of it Just one selfish experience after experience without caring who he hurt or used up I have a feeling there is to Kerouac than what the Author betrayed him to be but maybe that's just me not accepting the truth lol Run from this book Just enjoy Kerouac through his own words and not soul suckers fame seekers around him
