The most beautifully executed, the clearest and the most important utterance yet made by the
generation Kerouac himself named years ago as "beat"
Jack Kerouac's Great American Novel, now in a delightful new Clothbound Classics edition
On the Road swings to the rhythms of 1950s underground America, jazz, sex, generosity, chill dawns and drugs, with Sal Paradise and his hero Dean Moriarty, traveller and mystic, the living epitome of Beat. Now recognized as a modern classic, its American Dream is nearer that of Walt Whitman than Scott Fitzgerald, and it goes racing towards the sunset with unforgettable exuberance, poignancy and autobiographical passion.
