Hello again, WordPress. How is your Sunday doing?
Time for a little bit of Kerouac, we think. Always good for those slightly gloomy, overcast days when your private thoughts turn to themselves. There’s something about the jazz-infused sentiment and sensibility of Kerouac’s work that has an odd pull over the listener, enveloping them in a world that is strikingly familiar yet ever-so-slightly different to that they may have experienced themselves. Jack told his vision of America the way he saw it, with warts and all. Brutal honesty and cynicism, sarcasm, humour and a way of finding the beautiful in the morose and everyday that still rings true to this day.
We hope you enjoy this reading by one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century.
