The Subterraneans, Paperback


The Subterraneans haunt the bars and clubs of San Francisco, surviving on a diet of booze and benzedrine, Proust and Verlaine.

Living amongst them is Leo, an aspiring writer, and Mardou, half-Indian, half-Negro, beautiful and neurotic.

Their bitter-sweet and ill-starred love affair sees Kerouac at his most evocative.

Many regard this as being Kerouac's most touching and tender book.
