Kerouac advice

Posted to What Are You Reading?

I want to begin reading Kerouac. My friend absolutely raves about him, and I'm a huge mid 20th century American classics junkie. I was wondering if there's any title in particular that might be good for a first timer. I know On the Road is supposed to be a good introduction, but I'm not sure that's the one I want to read first. Suggestions welcome!
