    >It is not my fault that certain so-called bohemian elements have found in my writings something to hang their peculiar beatnik theories on. I love that the man even pushed away from those that honored him…

    >My former boss, and good friend, has an aunt that was a lover of Kerouac's and lived with him in NYC back when he was just starting out. She wrote a book about the experience and I read it recently. Good stuff and I thought about you :))

    >Great tribute. I recently finished reading a book by Andrew Blackman, called "On the Holloway Road" which was inspired by "On the Road" (www.andrewblackman.net – he's a blogger that I've been following for awhile now). I've never read "On the Road", but it is now on my 'must read' list. America lit was an elective in Uni and I passed it up to study Canadian Lit, which is not a bad thing, it just means that I missed out studying many of the great American writers in any kind of meaningful depth. – G
