the only people for me are the mad ones

anatomy of a jack kerouac binge (on books, not speed and asphalt)

First, this came out in winter 2008. The long lost collaboration between Kerouac and Burroughs.


After reading it, I was inspired to read:

Interesting to note: in the original scroll, the aliases (aliai?) are not in place. Ginsberg is Ginsberg. And Then i wanted to see how it compared, so I re-read the original. And Then listened to it on cd while driving/moving from seattle to los angeles.

And Then (this is getting nerdy), I read Carolyn Cassady's book (Neal Cassady/Dean Moriarity's wife), aptly titled Off The Road, about what was going on at home with the kids while the men were out zooming across the country with other women.

p.s. carolyn cassady is a fellow university of denver alum.
so is sinbad. so is condeleeza rice. hmmm.
Sadly, she is not featured so glamorously in a group sex scene with the Hell's Angels and Merry Pranksters in Hunter S. Thompson's "Hell's Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga."
