Product Description

During three weeks in 1951, Beat writer Jack Kerouac wrote the first draft of On the Road—typed as a long, single-spaced paragraph on eight sheets of tracing paper, which he taped together to form a scroll. Representing the identifiable point at which his vision & narrative voice first came together in a sustained burst of creative energy, the scroll is the ‘uncut’ version of Kerouac’s masterpiece—rougher, wilder & more sexually explicit than the edited work that appeared in 1957. One of the sublime documents in the history of American literature.
