“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.” -Jack Kerouac
Jack Kerouac (though he called himself Jean-Louis Lebris de Kérouac) born on March 12, 1922, and lived until October 21, 1969) was an American writer, poet and novelist of French-Canadian descent. He is a literary iconoclast and a pioneer of the Beat Generation. He was outstanding in spontaneous prose. His work covers different topics like Catholic spirituality, promiscuity, jazz, drugs, Buddhism, travel and poverty. He was an underground celebrity and a progenitor of the hippie movement, but some of the radical political elements of the hippie movement he didn't agree on.
