Summary
Here is Jack Kerouac's story, as recorded through the voices of his friends and lovers. Authors Barry Gifford and Lawrence Lee retraced Kerouac's life at home and on the road and talked with the prophets, musicians, poets, socialites, and working people who knew him. Some are famous (Allen Ginsberg, Gore Vidal, William Burroughs) ; some are not (Jack's boyhood buddies, his lovers, his barroom companions). All have contributed to a remarkably vibrant, riveting portrait of a life and the Beat Generation
Summary
An oral compendium traces the Beat Generation icon's life at home and on the road, sharing his experiences with his friends and lovers as well as a series of famous contemporaries, including Allen Ginsberg, Gore Vidal, and William Burroughs. Original
