kind of a new girl in da house

Posted to WritersAndGenres

so..i'm doin' my research on Kerouac's superb "On the road". so far I can't dig that book enough...
dean/Neal in his crazy kind of magic personality can really make me want to meet hom/obviously impossible/ and the fact , that Kerouac once said that the definition for the word "beat" really is "beatific"brings out the question "Happy beat people?"
Anw seems to me, that they're trin' to beat their worst enemy, TIME... by rushing into experiences... But Can anybody really do that?
