Hard to believe, but this year marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of the celebrated Mr. K's Beat bible, On the Road, a book that came out of nowhere and knocked everyone on their butts. Kerouac joins the Library of America with this ensemble of four novels (Road, The Dharma Bums, The Subterraneans, and Tristessa) plus Lonesome Traveler, a collection of travel essays, and selections from his journals of thumbing and bumming his way across Europe and Mexico. Road's anniversary will lure new readers as well as old ones looking for another fix, and this collection is a wonderful bargain. Happy anniversary, Jack.
