  • On The Road CD (2004)
    On the Road chronicles Jack Kerouac's years traveling the North American continent with his friend Neal Cassady, "a sideburned hero of the snowy West." As "Sal Paradise" and "Dean Moriarty", the two roam the country in a quest for self-knowledge and experience. Kerouac's love of America, his compassion for humanity, and his sense of language as jazz combine to make On the Road an inspirational work of lasting importance.

  • And The Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks (late 19402) with William S. Burroughs

  • Beatific Souls: Jack Kerouac's On the Road (2008) by Isaac Gewirtz
    Jack Kerouac's novel On the Road was a touchstone for a generation and the centrepiece of the Beat movement in literature and art. This new book examines Kerouac's life and career, and accompanies a major exhibition at The New York Public Library to celebrate the 50th anniversary of On the Road's publication in 1957. Kerouac's achievement as both a literary and cultural figure is traced, including his innovations in narrative techniques and in character development. His counterculture vision is explored, showing his image as a seer and sage who wanted to save America from its obsession with consumerism, the inhibition of sexuality and other conventional bourgeois pieties. The author also explores Kerouac's relationships with Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs  and other Beats, as well as the Beat movement in general.

  • Elegies: For Jack Kerouac and Gregory Corso (2005) by Barry Gifford
    Elegies is a set of two individual poetry broadsides by Barry Gifford written as elegies to Beat Generation writers Jack Kerouac and Gregory Corso: 1. "On Viewing the Manuscript Scroll of Jack Kerouac's On The Road in the Tosca Bar, San Francisco" - 2. "Small Elegy For Corso".

  • This Is the Beat Generation: New York-San Francisco-Paris (2001) by James Campbell
    Beginning in New York in 1944, James Campbell finds the leading members of what was to become the Beat Generation in the shadows of madness and criminality. Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William Burroughs had each seen the insides of a mental hospital and a prison by the age of thirty. A few months after they met, another member of their circle committed a murder that involved Kerouac and Burroughs as material witnesses.

    This book charts the transformation of these experiences into literature, and a literary movement that spread across the globe. From "The First Cut-Up"--the murder in New York in 1944--we end up in Paris in 1960 with William Burroughs at the Beat Hotel, experimenting with the technique that made him notorious, what Campbell calls "The Final Cut-Up."

    In between, we move to San Francisco, where Ginsberg gave the first public reading of Howl. We discover Burroughs in Mexico City and Tangiers; the French background to the Beats; the Buddhist influence on Kerouac, Gary Snyder, and others; the "Muses" Herbert Huncke and Neal Cassady; the tortuous history of On the Road; and the black ancestry of the white hipster.

  • Off the Road: My Years With Cassady, Kerouac, and Ginsberg (1990) by Carolyn Cassady

  • Heart Beat: My Life With Jack and Neal (1976) by Carolyn Cassady

  • Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady: First Night of the Tapes by Jack Kerouac (1969)
