That s a completely nostalgic four stars of course Has there been a writer whose reputation has plummeted uite so much between the 70s and now as jolly Jack and his tales of merry misogynism But like Bob Dylan saysWhile riding on a train goin westI fell asleep for to take my restI dreamed a dream that made me sadConcerning myself and the first few friends I hadWith half damp eyes I stared to the roomWhere my friends and I spent many an afternoonWhere we together weathered many a stormLaughin and singin till the early hours of the mornWith haunted hearts through the heat and coldWe never thought we could ever get oldWe thought we could sit forever in funBut our chances really was a million to oneAs easy it was to tell black from whiteIt was all that easy to tell wrong from rightAnd our choices were few and the thought never hitThat the one road we traveled would ever shatter and splitWell that was me and my pals I know where each of them are to this day but we don t see each other The choices multiplied and it became no longer easy to tell black from white Back then we built a whole galaxy of heroes up from wild trips to the art house cinema to uarry Bergman or Pasolini from the granite cliffs of existentialism or raids on libraries and second hand bookshops when we got to hear first about Kerouac and Kesey not to mention Tolkien and Mervyn Peake not to mention Emily Dickinson and Captain Beefheart and folk music and Alan Lomax and Alan Watts and John Fahey and Buffy Sainte Marie In those days every discovery hit like an express train and every bookshelf held high explosives Life is not lived at that intensity for too many years So forgive me for my four stars for Kerouac the old bum the old broke down disgraced beat with his typing not writing and every other reviewer on this site liking to put the boot in and justified too really they re not good books would I recommed any young person with any marbles to read nearly the whole of Kerouac s pile of typing as I myself did NO Read almost anything BUT Kerouac But my half damp eyes are staring back to that room It was on Willow Road in Carlton You can find it on Google Earth but some other people live there now

I was super into Kerouac in college which I supposed is the time in one s life where you are supposed to be into Kerouac Re reading On the Road in my thirties might not have been my best idea because it served only to show me how drastically my perspective on things had changed in a decade and how Jack s freewheeling madness might have been occasionally beautiful but it had also had tragic conseuences I couldn t ignore I thought about putting his books away for good but I found I couldn t because of how strong an impression he had once left on my young mind Kerouac s books are like my first tattoo a very silly tribal dragon on my shoulder this was years before Steig Larsson s books for the record I ll never get that covered up because it s nice to have a reminder that there was once a version of me who thought that was the most bad ass thing like everAnd I kept thinking about The Dharma Bums I was not interested in Buddhism yet the first time I read it Buddhism was my dad s thing and you know how when you are nineteen nothing your parents do is cool but now after a decade of studying Soto Zen I wondered what I d make of Jack s attempt at meditation practice I came across this gorgeous untitled poem he wrote for his first wife The world you see is just a movie in your mindRocks don t see itBless and sit downForgive and forgetPractice kindness all day to everybody and you will realize you re already in heaven nowThat s the storyThat s the messageNobody understands it nobody listensThey re all running around like chickens with heads cut offI will try to teach it but it will be in vainS why I ll end up in a shack praying and being cool and singing by my woodstove making pancakes Clearly he d understood SOMETHING he d had SOME insight He d actually written a biography of the Buddha in 1955 it wasn t published as a book until about ten years ago and which I now I have to read to satisfy my completist curiosity So I figured I could revisit The Dharma Bums in the full knowledge it wouldn t be the book I read fifteen years ago because I am not the person I was fifteen years agoAfter the unexpected success of his novel Ray Smith wants respite from his sudden fame and popularity He takes off to California where Japhy Ryder a fellow writer deeply immersed in Zen Buddhism takes him under his wing Ray and Japhy discuss Buddhism and poetry go mountain climbing and party hard He eventually gets a gig as a firewatcher on a lonely mountain peak in Washington State and plans on using this isolation to deepen his meditation and attempt at reaching satoriThe novel is fairly episodic and the pace much less frenetic and disorienting than in On the Road Knowing his books are heavily autobiographical I often have the urge to give Kerouac the benefit of the doubt it is possible that he never met genuinely intellectually or spiritually curious women wince It is possible that the guys he hung out with and idolized were really good dudes in person eyeroll and that the filter of his pen distorted them But whatever might have happened the people in the book are often rather repulsive The best parts are almost always when Ray is alone on the mountain or hopping trains across the country trying to find a good place to meditate The way Kerouac wrote about nature the landscapes he took in the way food and water tasted on his journey well it makes me feel like travelling and it makes me hungry I don t even like blueberry pie but the way Ray enjoys it it seems like the most delicious thing on earth and now I want some The Beats were much interested in what they referred to as Buddhist anarchism which is kind of a hodgepodge mix of cherry picked Buddhist practices and ideas and proto hippie philosophy and lifestyle as opposed to actual Buddhism so it s not really surprising that both Ray and Japhy play very fast and lose with oversimplified interpretations of things like the Precepts meditation practice and so on and use words like bodhisattvas bhikkus and satori willy nilly I think their hearts were in the right place but that a complete lack of experienced guidance and discipline made their earnest and ambitious efforts very scattered and vain There is no doubt that promising chicks enlightenment experiences through tantric sex was an effective pick up method in 1950s Frisco but I don t think either one of those guys knew the first thing about Vajrayana tantra neither do I for the record but I m pretty sure it s not what s going on in the book In fact it comes off as super sleazy I get that this was when Buddhism was just starting to become an interest in the West but I can t help but feel that someone who spend years studying Zen in Japan as Japhy claimed to have done ought to know better Kerouac was also never really able to polish off the Catholicism he was brought up on and it tinted his spiritual studiesI think the redeeming grace of this book is really the musical cadence and vividness of the prose and the self awareness You can say a lot of bad things about Kerouac but its undeniable that he knew how to string a sentence together with all the energy and rhythm a musician uses to play a solo There are times when I had to just stop reading for a moment to savor the word riff he had just thrown at me As for the self awareness it is very clear that RayJack knows he s not monk material that he s flawed and that it seems unlikely he ll ever be able to really get over the hurdles that hinder him But he keeps trying To be fair that s an incredibly important aspect of Zen perseverance It s a shame that his efforts were so misguided and that he so often hung out with people who brought out the worst in him The Dharma Bums keeps the 4 stars rating I d given it before despite the fact that it made me much sadder this time around than it had fifteen years ago I will be driving by Lowell Massachusetts next month and I think I might make a small detour to go pay my respects to Jack he doesn t hold the place he had in my heart when I was in college but I can t help thinking about him with a certain tenderness
