Synopsis: For two years, during the time that On the Road established Jack Kerouac as the spokesman and guiding light of the Beat Generation, Joyce Johnson was his girlfriend. This luminous, lyrical book is the story of that time. "A loving, tender and moving testament."--People.

Review: Johnson considers her personal history within the larger framework of the Beat movement and American society. Memories of a conventional Jewish middle-class upbringing and her revolt against it are interwoven with the early experiences of people she would meet later: Jack Kerouac (her boyfriend in the late 1950s), Allen Ginsberg, and others are evaluated with perceptive authority. Johnson's elegant prose is carefully wrought and thoughtfully measured in a way that Beat literature seldom was.
