9780140580167: MEMORY BABE - A CRITICAL BIOGRAPHY

In 1969 Jack Kerouac died a premature death. While his legendary lifestyle and unique creative talent made him a hero in his lifetime, his literary influence has grown steadily since. With "Memory Babe" (a childhood nickname honoring Kerouac's feats of memory), Gerald Nicosia gives us a complete biography of Jack Kerouacan honest, discriminating and, above all, compassionate assessment. This edition is enhanced by many rare photographs never before published."
