On The Road, the most famous of Jack Kerouac's works, is not only the soul of the Beat movement and literature, but one of the most important novels of the century. Like nearly all of Kerouac's writing, On The Road is thinly fictionalized autobiography, filled with a cast made of Kerouac's real life friends, lovers, and fellow travelers. Narrated by Sal Paradise, one of Kerouac's alter-egos, On the Road is a cross-country bohemian odyssey that not only influenced writing in the years since its 1957 publication but penetrated into the deepest levels of American thought and culture.About the Author:
JACK KEROUAC was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, in 1922. His first novel, The Town and the City, appeared in 1950, but it was On the Road, first published in 1957, that established his worldwide reputation as the chronicler of the Beat Generation. His later books include The Dharma Bums, The Subterraneans, and Desolation Angels. He died in 1969.
