More Information
Jack Kerouac, Jean Louis Lebris de Kerouac, was born on 12th March 1922 in Massachusetts USA. He lived in a French Canadian community and excelled at sports during his college years. In 1942 he joined the Navy but was totally unsuited to the discipline and in 1943 feigned insanity in order to get discharged. His foray into writing brought him into contact with Willima Burroughs, Ginsberg, Corso and Lucien Carr, all of whom were formative in the Beat movement. His private life was turbulent to say the least, the frantic life gave rise to his best known book On the Road, the epitome of the Beat Culture. Much has been written of his life and exploits which finally caught up with him in 1969 when he died of liver failure.
