And the Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks

I've not read anything from either author in a while so this was a great way back into their writing, telling of the Carr/Kammerer case, in almost alternating chapters written by Burroughs and Kerouac. Perhaps the best place to head after this is Satori in Paris, feels right. Some associations mentioned from the book, although maybe not all -

The World is Waiting For Sunshine - Benny Goodman
Port of Shadows/Le Quai des brumes directed by Marcel Carne
New World A Coming - Roi Ottley
The Four Feathers - Alexander Korda
Jean Cocteau by Modigilani
Pavel Tchelitchew
Eleonora Duse
Schlitz beer
Don Birnam in The Lost Weekend
La Grande Illusion by Jean Renoir
