About the book:

This major novel by the late Jack Kerouac, written 1951-1952, is one of his most important works. Never before published in its entirety, it has become, over the years, an underground legend. Here is the America of the late forties and early fifties that Kerouac knew so well and celebrated so magnificently - the irresistible lure of the cross-country highways feverishly traveled by Jack Duluoz, the narrator of this book, and Cody Pomeray; the loneliness of diners and cafeterias and cheap hotels, of 42nd Street bars and cafeterias; the small towns passed through quickly, evoking boyhood memories; the all-night wine-drinking and pot-smoking sessions, where the music was Billy Holiday and Lester Young and Charlie Parker - all this sense of superabundant reality informed by the knowledge of mortality: "I'm writing this book because we're all going to die ... my heart broke in the general despair and opened up inward to the Lord, I made a supplication in this dream."
