The book: 'Big Sur' by Jack Kerouac (1998 print) 

About: Kerouac’s 1962 semi-fictionalised account of his own adventures on California’s Big Sur coastline. Here depicted as his lit alter-ego Jack Duluoz, the beatnik author is joined by his free spirited friends at a cabin in Bixby Canyon, deep in the heart of Route 1’s rugged beauty. A tale of solitude in Big Sur, and an inability to return back to ‘real life’ in the face of loneliness, it perfectly captures the area’s captivation and draw.
