really liked it

All of the usual Beat characters that compose Kerouac's books are in Desolation Angels. The novel begins with Kerouac's autobiographical character Jack Duluoz on top of Desolation Peak and eventually coming down from the mountain and reuniting with all of his writer friends. What makes the novel somewhat unique is that the Beat movement begins to grab the attention of the media. So, you can see how some of its primary figures deal with the fame.
