Jack Kerouac's Ex-Girlfriend On Being His Biographer
Joyce Johnson: "After Jack's death in 1969, I kept up with the stream of biographies that began to appear, seldom finding in them the man I'd known myself. Jack's life provides a writer with almost too much tempting sensational material. It is easy to fall into the trap of trying to put it all in, which will often result in a book without a central thread - in other words, lots of stuff but no story." Publishers Weekly 09/14/12
