Pic

PicRead this while listening to Miles Davis' Kind of Blue. Sets the perfect mood. I really enjoyed this novella, so much so that it likely deserves a higher score. Pic is a charming and believable character, as are his brother and his brother's wife. The striking contrast between rural North Carolina and Harlem, New York is very well observed; the landscape, the laws, the peoplethe story draws these differences so well that they feel like entirely separate countries within Pic's experience. The idea that a poor child in 1948, who has lived his entire life in a small plot in the South, would go to New York and then a cross country trip to California, there is a romanticism to the story that Kerouac handled well.

The problem? Two. First, and this is a minor problem, Pic's Southern drawl "leaks." It sort of loses its flare as the book moves along, as though Kerouac sort of lost sight of it as he got into the rhythm of the writing. Second, the end of the book is jarringly abrupt. The entire book is a charming journey, full of insightful detail, until the end, when a month of time is wrapped into a few short sentences and the story just stops. To be honest, it's likely the single most abrupt ending to any book I've ever read, so abrupt that it reads as though Kerouac simply gave up on the story and closed it out in a few short paragraphs so as to be done with it. This story has another 30 pages out there somewhere itching to be told.

Had the book been longer, I would have loved it. As it stands, it's a well written and charming book.

simple, honest and true. This is a short and sweet little tale. Basically Jack's whole life in miniature with a heavy accent. This story was in the back of the library copy of the Subterraneans, so I read itthe last novel Kerouac wrote. The story of Pictorial Review Jackson, a young black orphan from North Caroline, who is taken to New York by his brother and then across country to Oakland to catch up with hos sisterinlaw. The books ends just as it builds up momentum in the road trip section. A bit of a mishmash. While not my favourite of Kerouac’s work, I did enjoy the Times Square section. On The Road will always be his best book, and I understand why. I quite enjoyed this, although it does end very suddenly as if he gave up on the idea, which is a shame because it has potential if fully developed. From the sounds of things this is something Kerouac kluged together to make a quick buck. The core of the book was written in 1951—this was when the character of Pictorial Review Johnson sprang to life—to which he grafted in the story of the Prophet on Times Square (first drafted in 1941), a chapter about a fudge factory deleted from Town and the City (1950) and the full story of the Ghost on the Susquhanna which had been cut from On the Road (1957) and it actually comes together quite nicely. The reason for this is that it’s a buddy/road novel and they generally consist of a beginning, an end and any number of assorted stops in between.

The story is a simple enough one. Pic has been living with his grandfather who can no longer care for him. An aunt takes him in but really doesn’t have room for him and yet when the boy’s older brother comes from New York to take charge of him he’s sent packing and the intention is for Pic to go into foster care. His brother, Slim, is having none of this, creeps back to the house later that night and runs away with the boy. Pic narrates the story in a thick dialect that takes some getting used to especially when you’re a Scot and the only reference you have when it comes to black culture is film and TV but I coped. What’s particularly charming about the narration is that it’s addressed to his absent grandfather. Pic manages to convey his wideeyed wonder most effectively:

[E]ver where I turn my ear I hear autos, and folkses talkin, and all kinds of noises and music, I tell you, it was the noise of ever’body doin something at the same time all over with they hands and feet and voices, jess as plain.
Having written stories in dialect I know how hard it is to get it right and so, yes, you can nitpick and you will find flaws and inconsistencies but on the whole Pic is a believable, engaging and colourful narrator which raises the standard of this book a notch because it really is a slight (and rather rushed) work; the whole adventure feels like it’s over in week. The ending was a disappointment but maybe not unrealistic. It all depends on what the narrative represents. If it’s a letter to his grandfather then it’s quite possible that it stops when Pic’s new life takes over and he no longer feels a need to cling to the past. Distractions get in the way and he forgets to finish telling his tale; it lies in a drawer unsent. Of course beginnings and endings are arbitrary choices and Pic’s story obviously begins before the events described in this book and continue on after the last page but the abrupt ending will probably still disappoint most readers even though it’s a logical stopping point. I actually think the real problem is not so much the abruptness of the ending but the brevity of the journey.

On the whole the book had a feel of a YA novel or even younger to be honest but it kept my interest right through to the end. I, and this is very unlike me, just wish he’d found a bit more to talk about.

Jack Kerouac was born Jean-Louis Lebris de Kerouac on March 12, 1922, in Lowell, Massachusetts. Jack Kerouac's writing career began in the 1940s, but didn't meet with commercial success until 1957, when On the Road was published. The book became an American classic that defined the Beat Generation. Kerouac died on October 21, 1969, from an abdominal hemorrhage, at age 47.
