On the Road , by Kerouac (essential US "1950s beat generation" travel novel 2 tapes)

£4.99

Product description

( full title is " On the Road ", by Jack Kerouac , read by David "Kung Fu" Carradine ... Carradine was selected for this narration, because of his remarkable range and intensity )

Kerouac described himself as a "Strange, solitary, crazy Catholic mystic". Born in the north-eastern US state of Massachusetts in 1922, to French-Canadian parents, his childhood education was carried out by Jesuit priests. His native language was French, and he did not start speaking English until he was six-years-old.

At the age of seventeen, Kerouac decided to become a writer. He developed a unique prose style, which he used to record the life of the American "traveller" and the much-feted "beat generation" of the 1950s. "On the Road" is one of his best known works.

ON THE ROAD :-
Dean Moriarty spent part of his time in jail and part in the library : a renegade, intellectual & mystic, he and Sal Paradise, a romantic and spiritual young author, are the embodiment of the beat generation, heading off across the United States to the sounds of jazz, the pulse of sex and the feel of drugs & drink.
