“The text on Kerouac is marvelous. I feel like you approach him as a poet, and very few people understand or appreciate that side of him. Because to understand Kerouac as a poet, you have to let go of every conception you have about poetry. He represents the ‘original mind’ of the poem—its natural state.” (R. Foye)
