The Dharma Bums (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

The Dharma Bums (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Dharma Bums was published one year after On the Road made Jack Kerouac a celebrity and a spokesperson for the Beat Generation. Sparked by his contagious zest for life, the novel relates the adventures of an ebullient group of Beatnik seekers in a freewheeling exploration of Buddhism and the search for Truth.

Synopsis:

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.

About the Author
