Book Review: “Desolation Angels” Finding one self to discover the world

Sometimes, when I doubt about a book, I open a random page and read a paragraph of it. If I like what I read I buy it.

I know this is not a proper book review, but if you like what you’ll read below, and I’m 99% sure you will, there’s nothing else I can say to you…

– Hold together, Jack, pass through everything, and everything is one dream, one appearance, one flash, one sad eye, one crystal lucid mystery, one word – Hold still, man, regain your love of life and go down from this mountain and simply be – be – be the infinite fertilities of the mind of infinity, make no comments, complaints, criticisms, appraisals, avowals, sayings, shooting stars of thought, just flow, flow, be you all, be you what it is, it is only what it always is – Hope is a word like a snow drift – This is the Great Knowing, this is the Awakening, this is the Voidness – So shut up, live, travel, adventure, bless and dont be sorry – Prunes, prune, eat your prunes – And you have been forever, and you will be forever, and all the worrisome smashings of your foot on innocent cupboard doors it was only the Void pretending to be a man pretending to know the Void-

Desolation Angels, Jack Kerouac
