A MASTERPIECE IN THE BEAT GENERATION


Tomorrow, it’s the 60 years anniversary of Jack Kerouacs mystery and autobiographical publication, “On the Road” or with a more fancy expression his novel à clef, novella. And it’s still going strong. Though I always get bored with Neal Cassady/Dean Moriarty after a while, the book still gives me the urge to let go, experience and to see the world through fresh eyes.

Furthermore, the genesis contributes to making it a very special and unique book. A masterpiece in the Beat Generation (together with Howl and "Naked Lunch") written over three weeks in April 1951. However, first published six years later. I have the pleasure to comment on the book tomorrow morning at 9 am in Go’morgen Danmark. Though, unfortunately not on site, but Dogme-ish selfie-recording with my iphone. Maybe that is a great match for the unpolished Beat spirit.
