Dedication:
Jack Kerouac, new Buddha of American prose, who spit
forth intelligence into eleven books written in half the number
of years (1951-1956) -- On the Road, Visions of Neal, Dr.
Sax, Springtime Mary, The Subterraneans, San Fransisco
Blues, Some of the Dharma, Book of Dreams, Wake Up,
Mexico City Blues, and Visions of Gerard -- creating a
spontaneous bop prosody and original classic literature.
Several phrases and the title of Howl are taken from him.
William Seward Burroughs, author of Naked Lunch, an
endless novel which will drive everyone mad.
Neal Cassady, author of The First Third, an autobiography
(1949) which enlightened Buddha.
All these books are published in Heaven.

New York United Press.]

“I had come to France and Brittany just to look up this old name of mine which is
just about three thousand years old and was never changed in all that time, as who
would change a name that simply means House (Ker), In the Field (Ouac)."
