About the book:

Now in a paperback edition, David Amram retraces in this engaging memoir the creative paths he followed through restless days and long, exhilarating nights with his collaborator and friend Jack Kerouac. With candor and humor, Amram illuminates the private side of Kerouac, his extraordinary intellect and his ardent pursuit of music and literature. Among the last of a generation that altered the style and substance of the arts in its time, Amram also celebrates in this wise and affecting book the renaissance of interest in Kerouacs work three decades after his death.
