Sal Paradise, a young innocent, joins the slightly crazed Dean Moriarty on a breathless, exuberant ride back and forth across the United States. Their hedonistic search for release or fulfilment through drink, sex, drugs and jazz becomes an exploration of personal freedom, a test of the limits of the American dream.

Jack Kerouac was born in Massachusetts. He had written his first novel by age eleven and decided to become a writer at seventeen. He called his style 'spontaneous prose' and recorded the life of the American 'traveler' and the experience of the beatgeneration of the 1950s. He was working on his longest novel of all, a surrealistic study of the last ten years of his life, when he died in 1969, aged forty-seven.
