Writer, poet, father of the Beat Generation, man of the road-Jack Kerouac just wanted to tell well-loved stories. But his stream-of-consciousness writing style-and his problems with authority-made this a difficult dream to achieve. Kerouac often traveled, writing about his experiences, making friends, and barely getting by, until it all resulted in the publication of On the Road, making him a literary figure who would not be forgotten. Jack Kerouac: "The Road Is Life" explores the writer's work and life through his own words and explains how his rebellious attitude resulted in a new literary movement.
