He had begun writing the manuscript in the mid-1950's, and finally completed it in 1961. It had been passed around hand to hand until it finally reached the publisher in 1964. " No one else writing in America during this time had achieved a rhythm as close to jazz, action and the actual speed of the mind, and the reality of a nationwide scene that has been lived by thousands of us between the ages of seventeen and forty-five" Jack Kerouac created the "Beat Generation". A near fine copy bound in red cloth lettered in gilt, in unclipped pictorial dust jacket rubbed at corners and joints, light wear to spine ends and wear along the edges with some chipping to upper edge of rear panel.
