Prague: Argo, 2005. First printing of the second Czech edition of Desolation Angels, translated by Petr Onufer. New translation replacing the original Edita Drozdová translation from 1995. Originally published by Coward McCann in 1965, Desolation Angels is the wild and soulful story of the legendary road trip that Jack Kerouac took before the publication of On the Road, told through the persona of Jack Duluoz and accompanied by his thinly-disguised Beat cohorts Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso and William Burroughs.
Crown octavo (8vo), 492 pp. Blue paper over boards in gloss-coated pictorial dust jacket. As new. Additional photos available on request.
