Like that one guy said: Good writers borrow, great writers steal. Welcome to the place where all things have been lifted, looted, and otherwise pilfered…Remember, possession is 9/10s of the law.
Jack Kerouac is best known for his iconic, voice-of-a-generation novel On the Road. Having never read anything (and I mean not a word) of Kerouac before, I decided it was time. Voila! He is the mentor for July-August.
For those who may not know much about Kerouac (like me until recently), I’m gonna give you a quick list of the highlight, or important lights — since there are some lowlights too — of his life and career, two things which may not be inseparable.
Okay, so that’s a really simplified introduction/timeline to a really complex dude. But it’s good to know at least this much because it’ll help with the conversation.
Whatchoo guys know about Kerouac? What do you guys want to know? Tune in next week!
