Jack Kerouac, Sexed Up

I've read many Kerouac books. None are as sexy as the interpretations of them featured on these early pulpish editions from the 50's/60's. His books were sexy in their own way. Just not this sexy.


  1. Yes, the Tristessa looks quite a bit classier than the puta Ti Jean described. Probably my fave Kerouac potboiler. The Subterraneans chick was una negra, right? So cover not quite correct. The OTR cover a bit bland

  2. Great point about Subterraneans. That's very true.
