About this book
"Fueled by coffee and pea soup, Jack Kerouac speed-typed On the Road in just three weeks in April 1951. He'd been travelling America for the past ten years and now, at last, the energy of his experiences flowed through his fingertips in a mad rush, pealing forth on a makeshift scroll that he laboriously taped together. The On the Road scroll became literary legend, and now Burning Furiously Beautiful sets the record straight, uncovering the true story behind one of America's greatest novels. Burning Furiously Beautiful explores the real lives of the key characters of the novel-- Sal Paradise, Dean Moriarty, Carlo Marx, Old Bull Hubbard, Camille, Marylou, and others. Ride along on the real-life adventures through 1940s America that inspired On the Road. By tracing the evolution of Kerouac's literary development, this book explains how it took years--not weeks--to write the seemingly sporadic 1957 novel. Through new research and exclusive interviews, this revised and expanded edition of Jack Kerouac's American Journey (2007) takes a closer look at the rise of Jack Kerouac and the beat generation, giving insight into Kerouac's family roots, his time at sea, the shocking murder that landed Kerouac in jail, his romances, and his startlingly original writing style."--Back cover.
