Jack Kerouac on the Steve Allen Show, 1959

Jack Kerouac was the face of what is called the Beat Generation. I don’t want to teach you about the Beats. I only want to show you this clip of Kerouac reading from his book, which I think is “Visions of Cody.” He reads the last few paragraphs from his other book, “On the Road.”

If you listen to any part closely, make it the lines beginning at 2:41, all the way to “Dean Mo-ri-ar-ti.”
