I've read just about all of Kerouac, Visions is interesting, especially since it was supposed to supercede On The Road. I think my favorite Kerouac would be On The Road, Lonesome Traveler, & Desolation Angels. An interesting thing is it seems Kerouac hasn't been an influence on modern writers. Kerouac considered himself in the same league with Joyce, & I think Doctor Sax proves it, that's the only childhood can be rendered impressionistically, since I think that's what childhood feels like. Just stray thoughts
