Book of Dreams is an experimental novel published by Jack Kerouac in 1961, culled from the dream journal he kept from 1952 to 1960.
In it Kerouac tries to continue plot-lines with characters from his books as he sees them in his dreams. Stylistically spontaneous, and flowing, like much of Kerouac's writing, it's a rare insight to the author's mind.
Book of Dreams is "all Kerouac's nights stung together. The poetic raw material of the Kerouac saga, the substrata of his novels and a commentary upon them."
A special gift for any admirer of the Beat Generation, and the subversively brilliant minds and masterpieces that defined it.
