Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

Jack Kerouac is best known through the image he put forth in his autobiographical novels. Yet it is only his prolific journals, in which he set down the raw material of his life and thinking, that reveal to us the real Kerouacahis true, honest, deep, private, philosophical self.

In "Windblown World," distinguished Americanist Douglas Brinkley has gathered a selection of journal entries from the most pivotal period of Kerouacas life, 1947a1954. Here is Kerouac as a hungry young writer finishing his first novel, "The Town and City," while forging crucial friendships with Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, and Neal Cassady. Truly a self-portrait of the artist as a young man, these journals show a sensitive soul charting his own progress as a writer and responding to his literary forebears. Finally and perhaps most appealing to Kerouacas legion of fans, the journals tell of the events that would eventually be immortalized in "On the Road," as Kerouac narrates two trips across the United States and Mexico and slowly cultivates his idea for a jazz novel. This unique and indispensable volume is sure to garner major critical attention and become an integral element of the Beat oeuvre.
