Kerouac overload

Jack Kerouac‘s “On The Road” has to be one of my books favorite books of all time, and in a strange way that book inspires me to travel.

One thought on “Kerouac overload

  1. I feel, and this could just be me, that a new insurgence of Kerouac fanatics are in the making. It’s probably just myself and a handful of other young people, but maybe not. Jack was a mad one, and I feel very akin to him. I look around, and I find, especially lately in my own mad travels, that I really am not the only one. We’ll see what happens. Thanks for the links.
