Jack Kerouac’s On the Road left its mark on the culture of the late 20th century with its remarkable prose, colloquial swing and lyricism inspired by the American landscape.

It created the American bohemian lifestyle which has been the theme of many subsequent books and movies.

Leaving behind a broken marriage, Sal Paradise joins Dean Moriarty on a series of journeys from New York to San Francisco and then to Mexico.

They hitch rides and board buses and experience the raw America.

If you are a fan of traveling in America, are a hipster, enjoy jazz or are a scholar of literary genres, you will enjoy this piece.
