Big Sur is a river and a region on California's Central Coast. Extending for 75 miles along the Pacific shore, from south of Carmel to north of San Simeon, the Big Sur Coast is defined by the backdrop of the rugged Santa Lucia Mountains as they abruptly descend to meet the sea. For millennia the home of native people, Americans and Europeans began to settle Big Sur country even before California became a state. This book combines outstanding photographs from 40 collections, ranging from family albums to institutional archives.

Die Selbstzerstörung eines Schriftstellers. Nach vielen Jahren hat es Jack Duluoz geschafft: Er ist jetzt ein weltberühmter Schriftsteller. Doch Jack verkraftet den Ruhm nicht und säuft sich regelrecht um den Verstand. Um der Aufdringlichkeit der Öffentlichkeit zu entkommen, flieht er in die Wildnis von Big Sur. Aber gerade die Einsamkeit ist es, die ihn zurück in die Stadt treibt - und dort, in den Straßen und Kneipen von San Francisco, erkennt Jack das Grauen und die tiefe Hoffnungslosigkeit unserer menschlichen Existenz. Und so taumelt er seinem Untergang entgegen ... Es ist, als hätte Kerouac für uns alle gelitten. Darum geht es in diesem autobiografischen und wichtigen Buch. Es ist eines seiner besten. Der Kultautor von ON THE ROAD. Der Erneuerer der amerikanischen Literatur. FESTA MUST READ. Große Erzähler ohne Tabus. Muss man gelesen haben. Jack Kerouac, die zentrale Figur der Beat-Generation, wurde 1922 in Lowell, Massachusetts, geboren und starb 1969 in St. Petersburg, Florida. Er schrieb zahlreiche Romane, ON THE ROAD machte ihn auf der ganzen Welt berühmt.

Big Sur's scenic grandeur and formidable landscapes have inspired countless artists and writers to capture the essence of Big Sur's magic. Early pioneers struggled to carve out their meager farms and ranchos, a few ships plied the treacherous rocky coastline, some losing their precious cargos at night to vicious storms, gold miners worked the ghost town of Manchester, while loggers stripped tanbark, giant redwoods were harvested, and ranchers exported grizzly bears by boats, and more recently thousands of hippies tried out their culture on the fragile environment. Those who survived it all inspired this book of tales.

In 1960 Jack Kerouac was near breaking point. Driven mad by constant press attention in the wake of the publication of On the Road, he needed to 'get away to solitude again or die', so he withdrew to a cabin in Big Sur on the Californian coast. The resulting novel, in which his autobiographical hero Jack Duluoz wrestles with doubt, alcohol dependency and his urge towards self-destruction, is one of Kerouac's most personal and searingly honest works. Ending with the poem 'Sea: Sounds of the Pacific Ocean at Big Sur', it shows a man coming down from his hedonistic youth and trying to come to terms with fame, the world and himself.
