The novel that defined a generation... "A historic occasion...the most beautifully executed, the clearest and the most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as 'beat,' and whose principal avatar he is." -Gilbert Millstein.

The New York Times "Life is great, and few can put the zest and wonder and sadness and humor of it on paper more interestingly than Kerouac." -Luther Nichols, San Francisco Examiner.

"Jack Kerouac's On the Road was the Huckleberry Finn of the mid-twentieth century. Kerouac substituted the road for the river, the fast car for the slow raft, the hipster in search of freedom for the black slave in search of freedom... While Huck and Jim were floating down America's mile-wide aorta, while Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty were roaring across America's heart, they were helping to change the course of American prose." -Aaron Latham, The New York Times Book Review.

"An excellent and compassionate picture of that segment of the generation which was left to fend for itself after World War II." -Kirkus Reviews
