". the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars ." This is the voice that defined a generation-hip, poetic, restless with vitality. With this inspired reading by Frank Muller, you will experience every intoxicating nuance. As he travels across 1950s America, aspiring writer Sal Paradise chronicles his escapades with the charismatic Dean Moriarty. Sal admires Dean's passion for experiencing as much as possible of life and his wild flights of poetic fancy. On the Road memorializes the author's real-life adventures with Neal Cassady and epitomizes what comes to be known as "the Beat generation." It is the novel that made Kerouac one of the most controversial and best-known writers of his time. With Frank Muller's virtuoso performance, the text flows like the road itself, an exhilarating trip for narrator and listener alike.

Author Bio: Jack Kerouac

Author Bio: Jack Kerouac

Jack Kerouac (1922–1969) was born in Lowell, Massachusetts in 1922. He attended local Catholic schools and eventually Columbia University, becoming in the late 1940s and early 1950s a member of what was soon to be called “the beat generation.” His first novel appeared in 1950, but it was On the Road, published in 1957, that epitomized to the world the beat philosophy. This novel created a sensation by chronicling a spontaneous and wandering way of life in a style that seemed founded both on jazz and on drug-induced visions. Kerouac published several novels, and Mexico City Blues is a volume of his poetry.
