Summary
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 lonliness 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 Billie Holliday 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". -- inside cover
