On the Road swings to the rhythms of fifties underground America, jazz, sex, generosity, chill dawns and drugs, with Sal Paradise and his hero Dean Moriaty, traveller and mystic, the living epitome of Beat. Now recognized as a modern classic, its American Dream is nearer that of Whitman than Scott Fitzgerald, and it goes racing towards the sunset with unforgettable exuberance, poignancy and autobiographical passion.
Jack Kerouac, On the Road, New York 1955.
