Jack's Book: An Oral Biography of Jack Kerouac Hardcover – January 1, 1978

by Barry Gifford (Author)


Here is Jack Kerouac's story, as recorded through the voices of his friends and lovers. Authors Barry Gifford and Lawrence Lee retraced Kerouac's life at home and on the road and talked with the prophets, musicians, poets, socialites, and working people who knew him. Some are famous (Allen Ginsberg, Gore Vidal, William Burroughs); some are not (Jack's boyhood buddies, his lovers, his barroom companions). All have contributed to a remarkably vibrant, riveting portrait of a life. This is a necessary audiobook for anyone interested in Kerouac or the Beat Generation. Jack's Book, like Kerouac's novels, makes a unique contribution to our understanding of a man and a generation that shaped the dreams and visions of those who followed.
