520    "We had finally found the magic land at the end of the 
       road and we never dreamed the extent of the magic." Mexico,
       an escape route, inspiration, and ecstatic terminus of the
       celebrated novel On the Road, was crucial to Jack 
       Kerouac's creative development. In this dramatic and 
       highly compelling account, Jorge García-Robles, leading 
       authority on the Beats in Mexico, re-creates both the 
       actual events and the literary imaginings of Kerouac in 
       what became the writer's revelatory terrain. Providing 
       Kerouac an immediate spiritual freshness that contrasted 
       with the staid society of the United States, Mexico was 
       perhaps the single most important country in his life. 
       Sourcing material from the Beat author's vast output and 
       revealing correspondence, García-Robles vividly describes 
       the milieu and people that influenced him while sojourning
       there and the circumstances between his myriad arrivals 
       and departures. From the writer's initial euphoria upon 
       encountering Mexico and its fascinating tableau of 
       humanity to his tortured relationship with a Mexican 
       prostitute who inspired his novella Tristessa, this volume
       chronicles Kerouac's often illusory view of the country 
       while realistically detailing the incidents and 
       individuals that found their way into his poetry and 
       prose. In juxtaposing Kerouac's idyllic image of Mexico 
       with his actual experiences of being extorted, assaulted, 
       and harassed, García-Robles offers the essential Mexican 
       perspective. Finding there the spiritual nourishment he 
       was starved for in the United States, Kerouac held fast to
       his idealized notion of the country, even as the stories 
       he recounts were as much literary as real."--|cProvided by
