    A great short read I usually find anything written in dialect difficult to read but this wasn’t the case when reading Pic Overall I found it pretty charming

    I uite enjoyed this although it does end very suddenly as if he gave up on the idea which is a shame because it has potential if fully developed

    From the sounds of things this is something Kerouac kluged together to make a uick buck The core of the book was written in 1951—this was when the character of Pictorial Review Johnson sprang to life—to which he grafted in the story of the Prophet on Times Suare first drafted in 1941 a chapter about a fudge factory deleted from Town and the City 1950 and the full story of the Ghost on the Susuhanna which had been cut from On the Road 1957 and it actually comes together uite nicely The reason for this is that it’s a buddyroad novel and they generally consist of a beginning an end and any number of assorted stops in between The story is a simple enough one Pic has been living with his grandfather who can no longer care for him An aunt takes him in but really doesn’t have room for him and yet when the boy’s older brother comes from New York to take charge of him he’s sent packing and the intention is for Pic to go into foster care His brother Slim is having none of this creeps back to the house later that night and runs away with the boy Pic narrates the story in a thick dialect that takes some getting used to especially when you’re a Scot and the only reference you have when it comes to black culture is film and TV but I coped What’s particularly charming about the narration is that it’s addressed to his absent grandfather Pic manages to convey his wide eyed wonder most effectivelyEver where I turn my ear I hear au tos and folkses talkin and all kinds of noises and music I tell you it was the noise of ever’body doin something at the same time all over with they hands and feet and voices jess as plain Having written stories in dialect I know how hard it is to get it right and so yes you can nit pick and you will find flaws and inconsistencies but on the whole Pic is a believable engaging and colourful narrator which raises the standard of this book a notch because it really is a slight and rather rushed work; the whole adventure feels like it’s over in week The ending was a disappointment but maybe not unrealistic It all depends on what the narrative represents If it’s a letter to his grandfather then it’s uite possible that it stops when Pic’s new life takes over and he no longer feels a need to cling to the past Distractions get in the way and he forgets to finish telling his tale; it lies in a drawer unsent Of course beginnings and endings are arbitrary choices and Pic’s story obviously begins before the events described in this book and continue on after the last page but the abrupt ending will probably still disappoint most readers even though it’s a logical stopping point I actually think the real problem is not so much the abruptness of the ending but the brevity of the journey On the whole the book had a feel of a YA novel or even younger to be honest but it kept my interest right through to the end I and this is very unlike me just wish he’d found a bit to talk about

    a book you can finish in a daysimple honest and true

    I really enjoyed this novella so much so that it likely deserves a higher score Pic is a charming and believable character as are his brother and his brother's wife The striking contrast between rural North Carolina and Harlem New York is very well observed; the landscape the laws the people the story draws these differences so well that they feel like entirely separate countries within Pic's experience The idea that a poor child in 1948 who has lived his entire life in a small plot in the South would go to New York and then a cross country trip to California there is a romanticism to the story that Kerouac handled well The problem? Two First and this is a minor problem Pic's Southern drawl leaks It sort of loses its flare as the book moves along as though Kerouac sort of lost sight of it as he got into the rhythm of the writing Second the end of the book is jarringly abrupt The entire book is a charming journey full of insightful detail until the end when a month of time is wrapped into a few short sentences and the story just stops To be honest it's likely the single most abrupt ending to any book I've ever read so abrupt that it reads as though Kerouac simply gave up on the story and closed it out in a few short paragraphs so as to be done with it This story has another 30 pages out there somewhere itching to be told Had the book been longer I would have loved it As it stands it's a well written and charming book

    I agree with other reviews that say this book is really of a longer short story than a fully developed novel That's too bad because there is a lot of potential here This is the only Kerouac book that I've read I've read 14 of his novels so far where his fictionalized self isn't the focus andor narrator It would have been so interesting to read a in depth story of being on the road from the perspective of a child who is forced to travel that way because of circumstance instead of choosing to do so to gain life experience I had heard terrible things about this book for a long time before I read it The dialect is overdone in a few places but overall this was better than what I had expected Something I liked a lot was the positive relationship between Pic and his brother Slim When Slim is introduced he sounds like he'll be nothing but trouble and lead Pic into a bad situation but it was a pleasant surprise to see how much he does care about Pic and is trying everything to make a good life for both of them and his wife This is a really uick read I wouldn't say it's an essential part of Kerouac's oeuvre but it is definitely worth checking out if you want to read Kerouac trying to expand beyond his out life story The big downside is that you will feel like there was a lot to be told kind of like you only read of the chapters in a book

    This story was in the back of the library copy of the Subterraneans so I read it the last novel Kerouac wrote The story of Pictorial Review Jackson a young black orphan from North Caroline who is taken to New York by his brother and then across country to Oakland to catch up with hos sister in law The books ends just as it builds up momentum in the road trip section A bit of a mish mash

  8. Dana Jerman Dana Jerman says:

    This is a short and sweet little tale Basically Jack's whole life in miniature with a heavy accent

  9. Brad Wojak Brad Wojak says:

    While not my favourite of Kerouac’s work I did enjoy the Times Suare section

    On The Road will always be his best book and I understand why
