Kerouac Manuscript Update #2

Click the link for the whole story and a nice photo of the scroll.

Kerouac's original `On the Road' will be published - The Boston Globe: "Now, in time to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the novel's publication, the version of ``On the Road' that Kerouac wrote on the scroll will be published next year in book form for the first time, said John Sampas of Lowell, the executor of the writer's literary estate and the brother of his third wife, Stella. It will include some sections that had been cut from the novel because of references to sex or drugs."

  2. Yeah, hard to believe that Kerouac would ever have been associated with such things!
