Carolyn Cassady Would Not Read On The Road, She'll Have You Know
Says Jack Kerouac's sometime lover and Neal Cassady's erstwhile wife, now living in an English trailer park ("there is nothing I like about America"), "I didn't want to read On the Road
when it came out in 1957 because I didn't want to know what Neal was doing with Jack when he left me. And, anyway, it was not my type of literature. I prefer Dickens, Shakespeare and the classics."
