Zennnnnnnnn: Happy Birthday, Jack Kerouac

It's the birthday of Jack Kerouac.

He wrote On the Road in twenty days in April 1951. He typed it all out on a 120 foot roll of tracing paper.


In a letter to Neal Cassady he said:
"Went fast because the road is fast...
just rolled it through typewriter
and in fact no paragraphs...
rolled it out on floor
and it looks
like a road."
