Description

    "Celebration of Quest and Transience"

    Jack Kerouac. On the Road. New York: Viking Press, 1957.

    First edition. Octavo. 310 pages.

    Black cloth over boards. White lettering to front board and spine. Top edge red. Binding slightly cocked. Some chipping to the extremities of the dust jacket. Overall, very good.

    "On the Road tells the rambling tale of two young male buddies, Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty, who trek back and forth across America to reawaken their souls by rediscovering the landscape. The somewhat cynical, meandering quality of the narrative, and Sal's whimsical first-person narration -- neither in the classical realist vein -- both contribute to the novel's celebration of quest and transience over destination and stability" (Laderman).

    David Laderman, Driving Visions, 10.
