And The Beat Goes On.

"I’m not a beatnik. I’m a Catholic"--Jack Kerouac.

(From the New York Times obituary of Jack Kerouac).


  • Jack Kerouac! Now THERE was a writer! I'll never forget reading "On The Road" when I was 14... it changed my WHOLE LIFE! Perhaps both of us should post more about great authors, their great books and their memorable quotes!

  • I have an M.A. in English but was never required to read Kerouac. I have been reading him lately, as you can probably tell from this blog, and am amazed at his writing skill. I also find his attachment to his roots--his parents and his religion--completely different from the hippies and others who used On The Road as a guidebook for their lives.
