Biographie de Jack Kerouac

Jack Kerouac was born in 1922 in Lowell, Massachusetts, the youngest of three children in a French-Canadian family. in high school he was a star player on the local football team, and went on to win football scholarships to Horace Mann (a New York prep school) and Columbia College. He left Columbia and football in his sophomore year, joined the Merchant Marines and began the restless wanderings that were to continue for the greater part of his life. His first novel, The Town and the City, was published in 1950. On the Road, although written in 1951 (in a few hectic days on a scroll of newsprint), was not published until 1957 - it made him one of the most controversial and best-known writers of his time. The publication of his many other books - among them The Subterraneans, The Dharma Bums, Big Sur, Doctor Sax, Desolation Angels - followed. Kerouac died in 1969, in St Petersburg, Florida, at the age of forty-seven.
