On the Road
Title: On the Road
Author: Jack Kerouac
As he travels across 1950s America, aspiring writer Sal Paradise chronicles his escapades with the charismatic Dean Moriarty. Sal admires Dean’s passion for experiencing as much as possible of life and his wild flights of poetic fancy. On the Road memorializes the author’s real-life adventures with Neal Cassady and epitomizes what comes to be known as “The Beat Generation.”
In its time, Kerouac’s masterpiece was the bible of the Beat Generation. Now, this modern classic goes racing toward the sunset with unforgettable exuberance, poignancy, and autobiographical passion, swinging to the solemn rhythms of 1950’s underground America.
