Description
In the spring of 1943, during a stint in the Merchant Marine, 21-year-old Jack Kerouac set out to write his first novel, seven years before The Town and the City would officially launch his writing career. Not published until nearly 70 years later, The Sea Is My Brother is a formative work that bears the hallmarks of classic Kerouac: the search for spiritual meaning in a materialistic world, spontaneous travel as the true road to freedom, late nights in bars and apartments engaged in intense conversation, the desperate urge to escape from society, and the strange, terrible beauty of loneliness.

"Rarely does talking seem as much like action as it does in The Sea Is My Brother. The characters' words fire the imagination. If they don't move you, to quote Louis Jordan, 'Jack, you dead.'... There is a song inside The Sea Is My Brother, a song for anyone who has ever looked over the horizon and thought, 'I'm gonna get out of here someday'."Cleveland Plain Dealer
