On the Road: (penguin Great Books of the 20th Century)

(Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

"An authentic work of art . . . the most beautifully executed, the clearest and the most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as 'beat,' and whose principal avatar he is." —
Gilbert Millstein, The New York Times 


"
On the Road has the kind of drive that blasts through to a large public. . . . What makes the novel really important, what gives it that drive is a genuine new, engaging and exciting prose style. . . . What keeps the book going is the power and beauty of the writing." —
Kenneth Rexroth, San Francisco Chronicle

"A highly euphoric and intensely readable story about a group of wandering young hedonists who cross the country in endless search of kicks." —
Leonard Feather, Downbeat 

"On the Road is perhaps the supreme American romance . . . a mystical and poignant reminder of lost youth, and those sublime years when everyone feels immortal." —The Guardian, "The 100 Best Novels"

"[On the Road] changed my life like it changed everyone else's . . . It speeds by like a freight train . . . You grabbed ahold of the train, hopped on and went along with him, hanging on for dear life." —Bob Dylan

"Kerouac turned up the temperature in American letters, and it's never gone down since." —John Updike

"[On the Road] showed me that you could do things that weren't sypposed to be done. Suddenly, I realized I wasn't the only one to think I was a nut because I had strange thoughts. Finally, here was somebody telling the truth." —David Bowie

"If [Kerouac] hadn't written On the Road, The Doors would have never existed . . . that sense of freedom, spirituality, and intellectuality—that's what I wanted in my own work." —Ray Manzarek

"My teenage years were soaked in Kerouac. I wanted to go on a road trip with Neal Cassady. The expanse of the American West became implanted in my imagination." —Colum McCann

"On the Road, The Dharma Bums . . . That was my starting point, the Beats putting poetry—spoken word—and jazz together." —Van Morrison
