    Has anybody else read this? I enjoyed it and would recommend it but it was spoiled a bit for me by the footnotes for such obvious things, especially in the title story. Even in the other parts of the book, the footnotes were unnecessary. Anyway, it made me want to join the merchant navy!

  3. I have read it. I'm sure it's okay for a first novel by a 20 year-old. But it is not something that should have been published. Jack Kerouac himself dismissed it as rubbish.
