About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Visions of Kerouac. A Play.

Publisher: Little Brown & Co, Boston

Publication Date: 1977

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.


A Fine tight copy in a Very Good plus, unclipped dust jacket with a touch of surface soiling and a tiny chip to one corner. Duberman has written a dramatic biography for the stage that met with unexpected raves when first performed in a workshop. For all the legacy and sprawling mythology behind On The Road, from the three week Benzedrine fuelled writing session to the who's-who-of-the-50's nature of the characters within, the residing central thread is the relationship between Kerouac and Cassady, the two broken down heroes of the western night. It is this relationship that takes centre stage and every scene in which it features makes for a compelling watch for both Kerouac converts and the uninitiated. This is due to Martin Duberman's well researched script and obvious passion for the subject coupled with two strong and confident central performances. Duberman's script explores the complicated relationship between the two men with vigour and compassion and adds a consistent tension with a unique take on the love-hate relationship between a writer and his main character.
