Inspired by Jack Kerouac's travels across America with fellow Beat writers, On the Road tells the story of two friends whose cross-country road trips are a quest for meaning and true experience. Written with a mixture of sad-eyed naivet, wild ambition, and Kerouac's love of America, compassion for humanity, and sense of language as jazz, On the Road is a novel of freedom and longing that defined the Beat generation and changed American literature.
