Visions of Cody

Written by Jack Kerouac

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics Series

Visions of Cody Synopsis

An experimental novel which remained unpublished for years, Visions of Cody is Kerouac's fascinating examination of his own New York life, in a collection of colourful stream-of-consciousness essays. Transcribing taped conversations between members of their group as they took drugs and drank, this book reveals an intimate portrait of people caught up in destructive relationships with substances, and one another. Always fixated by Neal Cassady - the Cody of the title, renamed for the book along with Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs - Kerouac also explores the feelings he had for a man who would inspire much of his work.

Visions of Cody Press Reviews

You will find some of Kerouac's very best writing in this book. It is funny, it is serious. It is eloquent * The New York Times *
