On the Road swings to the rhythms of 1950s underground America, jazz, sex, generosity, chill dawns and drugs, with Sal Paradise and his hero Dean Moriarty, traveller and mystic, the living epitome of Beat.

Now recognised as a modern classic, its American Dream is nearer that of Walt Whitman than F. Scott Fitzgerald, and it goes racing towards the sunset with unforgettable exuberance, poignancy and autobiographical passion.
Industry Reviews
"A paean to what Kerouac described as 'the ragged and ecstatic joy of pure being'"
Sunday Times

"Life is great, and few can put the zest and wonder and sadness and humor of it on paper more interestingly than Kerouac."
San Francisco

"A dazzling piece of writing for all of its rough edges, stripped of affectations that in the novel can sometimes verge on bathos . . . It seems much more immediate and contemporary."
Luc Sante, New York Times Book Review
