    Kerouac's On the Road is a classic of postwar American literature, the defining work of the Beat generation, yet its author's background was French Canadian. Drawing on his private papers, this revealing study by his former partner peels away the legend to shed new light on the composition of that masterpiece, revealing a writer caught between two cultures, struggling to forge a voice to express his duality and his unique outsider's vision of America.
