  • "FROM THE PUBLISHER : On the Road chronicles Jack Kerouac's years traveling the North American continent with his friend Neal Cassidy, "a side burned hero of the snowy West." As "Sal Paradise" and "Dean Moriarty," the two roam the country in a quest for self-knowledge and experience. Kerouac's love of America, his compassion for humanity, and his sense of language as jazz combine to make On the Road an inspirational work of lasting importance. Kerouac's classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be "Beat" and has inspired every generation since its initial publication more than forty years ago."@en

  • "Jack Kerouac's groundbreaking novel soon to be a major motion picture with a star-studded cast. In what is sure to be one of the major cinematic events of 2012, Jack Kerouac's legendary Beat classic, "On the Road," will finally hit the big screen.

  • ""Con el paso del tiempo, En el camino, un libro que fue la biblia y el manifiesto de la generación beat, se ha convertido en una 'novela de culto' y en un clásico de la literatura norteamericana. Con un inconfundible estilo bop, que consiguió para Kerouac el título de 'heredero de Charlie Parker', en esta novela se narran los viajes enloquecidos, a bordo de Cadillacs prestados y Dodges desvencijados, de Dean Moriarty--el mítico hipster, el héroe de todos los beatniks, 'un demente, un ángel, un pordiosero'--y el narrador Sal Paradise, recorriendo el continente, de Nueva York a Nueva Orleans, Ciudad de México, San Francisco, Chicago y regreso a Nueva York. Alcohol, orgías, marihuana, éxtasis, angustia y desolación, el retrato de una América subterránea, auténtica y desinhibida, ajena a todo stablishment. Una crónica cuyos protagonistas, en la vida real y en el libro, fueron Jack Kerouac (Sal Paradise), Neal Cassady (Dean Moriarty), Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs."--Cubierta."
  • "'What's your road, man - holyboy road, madman road, rainbow road, guppy road, any road. It's an anywhere road for anybody anyhow'. Sal Paradise, young and 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. A brilliant blend of fiction and autobiography, Jack Kerouac's exhilarating novel defined the new 'Beat' generation and became the bible of the counter culture."

  • "On September 5, 1957, Jack Kerouac?s novel ON THE ROAD was published. Since then, few books have had as profound an impact on American culture. Pulsating with the rhythms of late-1940s/1950s underground America, jazz, sex, illicit drugs, and the mystery and promise of the open road, Kerouac?s classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be?Beat? and has inspired generations of writers, musicians, artists, poets and seekers who cite their discovery of the book as the event that?set them free.? Based on Kerouac?s adventures with Neal Cassady, ON THE ROAD tells the story of two friends whose four cross-country road trips are a quest for meaning and true experience. Expressing a mixture of sad-eyed naïveté and wild abandon, and imbued with Kerouac?s love of America, his compassion for humanity, and his sense of language as jazz, ON THE ROAD is the quintessential American vision of freedom and hope. It changed American literature and changed anyone who has ever picked it up."@en
