Original “On The Road” Manuscript to Be Published

On the Road Manuscript, #3
Jack Kerouac’s original manuscript of “On The Road”

Boing Boing has a post on the news that the original unedited version of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” is going to be published. Apparently some parts of the original manuscript that dealt with sex and drugs had been edited out.

This is great news for Kerouac fans. I had a bit of difficulty trying to photograph the original manuscript when it made it’s way to San Francisco earlier this year.
