Subterraneans is one of those few books Kerouac wrote that was really a masterpiece. Long after I stopped being able to read On the Road, I still found Subterraneans captivating. Maybe it is because he had a much smaller, more focused story to tell.

Hagermeister I agree - he reigned it in and the writing is better for it.
