Reveals Kerouac in his celebratory mood as he looks back on the joy-filled, frantic days of his youth in the small industrial town of Lowell, Massachusetts. Clumsy, passionate and football mad, Jacky Duluoz (a thinly-disguised Kerouac) is riding high on the myriad wonders of life.

Jack Kerouac was born in Lowell, Massachusetts in 1922. In 1947, enthused by bebop, the rebel attitude of his friend Neal Cassady, and the throng of hobos, drug addicts and hustlers he encountered in New York, he decided to discover America and hitchhike across the country. His writing was openly autobiographical and he developed a style he referred to as 'spontaneous prose' which he used to record the experiences of the Beat Generation. Kerouac wrote a number of hugely influential and popular novels - most famously the international best-seller On the Road. Among his many other novels are Visions of Cody, The Subterraneans, The Dharma Bums and Big Sur. As much as anything, he came to represent a philosophy, a way of life. He died in 1969.
