Jack Kerouac (March 12th, 1922 – October 21st, 1969) was an American author and poet best known for his narrative style and for being a pioneer of a new social movement known as the Beat Generation along with other authors such as William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg.
A literary iconoclast during his lifetime, Kerouac’s popularity only grew with his premature death and his books are as popular today as they always were, maybe more so considering the number of his works published posthumously.
Today we’re sharing what is thought to be the only footage of the author, with sound in the only surviving interview. We think it gives a great impression of who Jack Kerouac was and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
