Time magazine reviewed The Dharma Bums - still my favorite Kerouac novel - on October 6, 1958. I just learned that you can access the review on-line at The Yabyum Kid, the latter topic being an entry in The Beat Handbook, Day 2.
Not exactly a glowing review, eh?
Speaking of which, tomorrow's post will focus around a perjorative statement about Jack that Ayn Rand makes in Atlas Shrugged. However, as you will see, it may be that Ayn inadvertently gave Jack the idea for one of his most beloved terms in The Dharma Bums!
Stay tuned . . . .
