This was Kerouac's first go at a novel. It was left largely unfinished. But it's rough and raw in all the ways that classic Kerouac should be. For a big fan, this book quintessential political, rollicking, and philosophy talking, travel tail. It shows Kerouac's pure intentions with little embellishment. Now, had it been the novel published 14 years later it would have, without doubt, been a literary gem. Kerouac's style was only developing when he wrote this but without the practice On The Road, Big Sur, and The Dharma Bums would never have come to be written with such supreme class, style and honesty that defines Kerouac. Also, I'm the first review: How cool is that?

Kerouac's lost first novel reads just like that, a first/lost novel. It will become a decade later in his life when he will become the writer that inspired a generation, including Bobby Dylan. He was 21 when he wrote this. Anyways, it was good enough to finish on a cold evening!
