Doctor Sax.
by [The Beats] Kerouac, Jack.

Publisher Information:
Andre Deutsch,, London:: 1977..

A Fine tight copy in a Very good plus, unclipped dust jacket with light sunning to spine and front panel. Kerouac tells the story of Jackie Duluoz, based on Kerouac himself, relating a dream in which he finds himself in Lowell, Massachusetts, his childhood home town. Prompted by this dream, he recollects the story of his childhood along with his shrouded childhood fantasies. The eponymous Doctor Sax, also part of Jackie's fantasy world, is a dark but ultimately friendly figure with a shrouded black cape, an inky black slouch hat, a haunting laugh, and a "disease of the night" called Visagus Nightsoil that causes his skin to turn mossy green at night. Sax, who also came to Lowell because of the Great World Snake, lives in the forest in the neighboring town of Dracut, where he conducts various alchemical experiments, attempting to concoct a potion to destroy the Snake when it awakens.
