Edited by Douglas Brinkley

“In the beginning, there was Kerouac and he was good. Shiningly, brilliantly, audaciously good—so good that one runs out of adjectives that might do him justice, so good that rereading him brings a sense of relief that the sentences hold up on their own…. [Kerouac’s work] marked the articulation of a new voice far more interesting for what the author had to say and the way in which he said it than for the technical breakthroughs that it was heralded—and scorned—for at the time.” — San Francisco Chronicle
