  1. Pic

    Pic is a novella by Jack Kerouac, first published in 1971. Pic is the story of a small child, Pictorial Review Jackson, from North Carolina. When his grandfather, with whom he lives, dies, his older brother appears and plucks him from the dysfunctional home of his aunt. They journey north to New York City, where Pic bears witness to the economic 'hard times' his brother is experiencing. After losing not one, but two jobs in one day, his brother sends his pregnant girlfriend to live with her sister in San Francisco, as the two boys try to hitch and bum their way across the country. It is written in a voice that is stereotypically black. Apparently Kerouac felt that this would be appropriate for his ten-year old protagonist. It is out of print and currently available only as a single volume with either of Kerouac's novels Satori in Paris and The Subterraneans.
