Here is Jack Kerouac's story as recorded through the voices of his friends and lovers. Authors Barry Gifford and Lawrence Lee retraced Kerouac's life at home and on the road and talked with the prophets, musicians, poets, socialites, and working people who knew him. Some are famous (Allen Ginsberg, Gore Vidal, William Burroughs) ; some are not (Jack's boyhood buddies, his lovers, his barroom companions) . All have contributed to a remarkably vibrant, riveting portrait of a life. This is a necessary book for anyone interested in Kerouac or the Beat Generation. This book also contain the character key to the Duluoz legend. Black & white photos pepper the prose. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
