The Beat Goes On: Carolyn Cassady's OFF THE ROAD Now Available in New Paperback Edition
New in paperback this month is Off the Road, Carolyn Cassady's memoir of Neal Cassady and his remarkable friendships with Jack Kerouac and Alan Ginsburg. Written by the woman who loved them all - as wife of Cassady, lover of Kerouac, and friend of Ginsburg - this riveting autobiography captures one of the most vital eras in twentieth-century literature and culture. Cassady's portrait of love, literature, and friendship at the heart of the Beat Generation "bursts with emotions of joy and enlightenment, anger and restlessness, delight and desolation," according to the Boston Herald.
