A Biography By Ann Charters
“KEROUAC demystified… Ann Charters has written the best factual life of Kerouac that will probably ever be written. The clean focus of her book dignifies and makes permanent Kerouac’s brief yet enormously vital presence among us… And one good way of familiarizing yourself with a true high-flyer who gave new pace to the smug American Dream is to read this conscientious portrait.” – Seymour Krim in NEWSDAY
First paperback edition by Ann Charters. Cover by Jim Sharpe.
