To establish early themes, spiritual struggles, and stylistic shifts, however, Giamo begins with the first novel, The Town and the City, and ends with Big Sur, the final turning point in Kernouac's quest." "Kerouac was primarily a religious writer bent on testing and celebrating the profane depths and transcendent heights of experience and reporting both truly. Baptized and buried a Catholic, he was also heavily influenced by Buddhism, especially from 1954 until 1957 when he integrated traditional Eastern belief into several novels. Catholicism remained an essential force in his writing, but his study of Buddhism was serious and not solely in the service of his literary art."--Jacket." ;
