The Sea is My Brother

by Jack Kerouac - £10.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141193342 | ISBN 10: 0141193344

The Sea is My Brother is Jack Kerouac's very first novel, begun shortly after his tour as a merchant sailor in 1942.
 
Lost during his lifetime, it is an intense portrait of friendship and brotherhood and a meditation on the desire to escape society, following the fortunes of two men as they impulsively decide to work their passage on the S.S. Westminster: drinking, arguing, playing cards, dodging torpedoes and contemplating the vast, terrible beauty of the sea.
 
Published with fragments of early stories and letters, this visceral work gives a unique insight into the young Kerouac and the formation of his genius.
