Carolyn Cassady, 90, The "Grande Dame Of The Beat Generation"
"[She] was a central figure in the real-life circle of friends whose travels across the country in search of kicks and revelation were immortalized in On the Road
. She was the inspiration for the character Camille, the second wife of Dean Moriarty, the 'wild yea-saying overburst of American joy' who makes the novel go go go."
