Jack Kerouac was an American writer and one of the most iconic figure of the Beat Generation. He wrote his most famous book, On the road, in New York City, in April 1951. The characters are based on his friends and the novel tells the story of Dean Moriarty, a free-spirited young man obsessed with driving from one coast of the United States to another as fast as possible, and Sal Paradise, a writer who is also the narrator. They embodied post-war Americans with their crazy hopes and disillusions.
