About this title


The author chronicles her picaresque experiences on the road to self-discovery, from Colorado, to Europe, to Mexico, and back again

From Library Journal:

This memoir continues the picaresque saga begun in Kerouac's first autobiographical novel, Baby Driver ( LJ 10/1/81). Like one of her father's characters, Jan travels across the globe exploring her sensations, searching for her identity, waiting for life's pearl to be handed to her. Behind all of her restlessness lies the ghost of Jack Kerouac, the father she never knew. Despite Kerouac's denial of paternity, Jan shows herself his daughter. Movement, time, freedomhis themes are now hers. She has a good ear and her prose is vivid, though it sometimes suffers from a profusion of metaphors. An interesting look into a child's heart as she searches for her father and herself, and a welcome event for all Kerouac fans. William Gargan, Brooklyn Coll. Lib., CUNY
