Summary
ON THE ROAD chronicles Jack Kerouac's years traveling the North American continent with his friend Neal Cassady, "a sideburned hero of the snowy West." As "Sal Paradise" and "Dean Moriarty," the two roam the country in a quest for self-knowledge and experience. Kerouac's love of America, his compassion for humanity, and his sense of language as jazz combine to make ON THE ROAD an inspirational work of lasting importance. Kerouac's classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be "Beat" and has inspired every generation since its initial publication more than fifty years ago. "ON THE ROAD is a winding, meandering journey, and Will Patton's performance as narrator provides the map... Patton creates distinct voices for the two main characters, speaking for...the observant Sal Paradise and...the pleasure-seeking Dean Moriarty. Patton is appropriately quiet or exuberant, optimistic or cautious, and an ideal guide into the experience that is ON THE ROAD."–Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award
