Kerouac, more than his fellow Beats, has an enduring fascination for Americans, especially the youngsters. Although we finally got a film of "On the Road" and nobody really seemed to care. Kerouac is one of those writers that you can't really separate his writing from his larger than life personality. I'm not a big fan of his writing, but this is one of his better books, a semi-autobiographical, semi-fantastic (ghosts, demons) novel based on his childhood in Lowell, Mass. I'm not sure why it's subtitled "Faust Part Three." Maybe because of the spirits. Saxy Time!
