Kerouac Still a Cult Figure

Jack Kerouac and his merry band of maniacs were about more than writing, although they were that, too. They were searchers for life’s underlying strata in a very Zen sense, and in the process they laid bare subcultures in the U.S. that were both rich and tragic. The below link gives an early review of the new movie based on Kerouac’s cult classic, On The Road. And the article contains Francis Ford Coppola’s trailer.


Strangely, our current era feels a lot like that of the late fifties, (yes, I’m that old), with something new, exciting, provocative, fun, and significant around the corner. Forgive me all the cliches here, but it feels like the perfect time to breath new life into a cultural icon’s most appreciated work.
