Tietchen's informed detailing of the novella's history provides an exciting look into Kerouac's formative years The Haunted Life and Other Writings can best be understood as part of a whole, addressing this crucial period of his personal and creative development, that ultimately shifted the direction of American literature in the 1950s.”
Providence Sunday Journal, 6/15/14
A very satisfying introduction to Kerouac's attempts at finding his voice and vision as a writer The prose is remarkably clear-eyed, romantic, cynical and full of adolescent angst we see a great writer shaping, trying out his various tools and techniques and we glimpse the young writer desperate to hit the open road, readying himself for a new world full of existential doubt, lyrical epiphanies and the longings of a younger soul.”
