In Defense of Kerouac

Here is novelist Danny Lanzetta in defense of On the Road and Jack Kerouac:

I don't know why people have to talk shit about Jack Kerouac. On the Road is a book full of love. It's about friendships and how they change as the world changes and how everyone you love eventually recedes from your life: "What is that feeling when you're driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing?-it's the too-huge world vaulting us, and it's good-by."
