"Big Sur's a humane, precise account of the extraordinary ravages of alcohol
delirium tremens on Kerouac, a superior novelist who had strength to complete his poetic narrative,
a task few scribes so afflicted have accomplishedothers crack up. Here we meet San Francisco's
poets and recognize hero Dean Moriarty ten years after On the Road. Jack Kerouac was a 'writer,'
as his great peer W. S. Burroughs says, and here at the peak of his suffering humorous genius, he wrote
through his misery to end with 'Sea,' a brilliant poem appended on the hallucinatory sounds of the Pacific
Ocean at Big Sur."Allen Ginsberg

Jack Kerouac (1922-1969) was born in Lowell, Massachusetts. He attended local Catholic schools and eventually Columbia University, becoming in the 1940s and 1950s a member of what was to be called "the Beat generation." His first novel appeared in 1950, but it was On the Road (1957) that epitomized to the world the Beat philosophy.

Tom Parker, recipient of the Golden Voice award, records a remarkable variety of books while pursuing his love of theater by directing two or three professional stage productions a year in the Washington, D.C., area.
