Jack Kerouac's clan analyzed in the New Yorker

Categories: Books


The 50th anniversary of Jack Kerouac's On the Road has cast his famous book under new light, but the best essay I've read about both the novel and the pals who populated it is in the new issue of the New Yorker. Writer Louis Menand authors a piece that notes the complexities of the male bonding Kerouac evoked, both in his writing and in his everyday life. -- Jennifer Maerz
