    I am honored to be the first person to review this lovely and well-written book. I love Jack Kerouac, and have read 4 of his books thus far. A biography was just what I needed to fuel me forward to finish is collective works. The author clearly was passionate about the subject matter, and spared no time in researching and fact checking. It probably needs to be mentioned that you should familiarize yourself with the Beat Generation and at least On The Road before you start reading this, but it is splendid and worth the read for any fan of the beatnik revolution or the life and endless charisma of Mr. Jack Kerouac.
