9780143036067: Windblown World: The Journals of Jack Kerouac, 1947-1954

This is a selection of Kerouac's journals that provide further insight into the man behind the words. Jack Kerouac is best-known through the image he put forth in his autobiographical novels. Yet it is only his private journals, in which he set down the raw material of his life and thinking, that reveal to readers the real Kerouac. In "Windblown World", distinguished academic Douglas Brinkley has gathered a selection of journal entries from the most pivotal period in Kerouac's life - 1947 to 1954. Here is Kerouac as a hungry young writer finishing his first novel while forging crucial relationships with Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs and Neal Cassady. Truly a self-portrait of the artist as a young man, this unique and indispensable volume is sure to become an integral element of the Beat oeuvre.
