A lot of people have asked me why did I write that book, or any book. All the stories I wrote were true because I believed in what I saw. I was traveling west one time, at the junction of the state line of Colorado, its arid western one...
There's a lot of stuff on St. Jack floating around out there in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of "On the Road" and the recent release of the original scroll. So much so that it's downright Kerowacky!
You can get deluged, but of all the items currently on display, do NOT miss this clip of the writer on "The Steve Allen Show" reading from "Visions of Cody" and "On the Road" to Allen's cocktail lounge blues piano.
That's Jack reading poetry at some Beat event or other a long time ago.
