Windblown World: The Journals

Kerouac is best known through the image he put forth in his autobiographical novels. Yet it is only his private journals in which he set down the raw material of his life and thoughts.

Truly a self-portrait of the artist as a young man, this unique and indispensable volume is sure to become an integral element of the Beat oeuvre. |A must for anyone who has an interest in Kerouac and the Beats.| - Johnny Depp
