Essential Edition handsomely packaged with french flaps, rough fronts, high-quality paper, and a distinctive cover look
On the Road chronicles Jack Kerouacs years traveling the North American continent with his friend Neal Cassady, a sideburned hero of the snowy West. As Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty, the two roam the country in a quest for self-knowledge and experience. Kerouacs love of America, his compassion for humanity, and his sense of language as jazz combine to make On the Road an inspirational work of lasting importance.
Kerouacs classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be Beat and has inspired every generation since its initial publication more than forty years ago.
