Neverending roads

Jonah Raskin Writes about two literary anniversaries- the 50th of Jack Kerouac's On The Road and the 100th of Jack London's The Road. He details how London's travels inspired Kerouac's.

It's a fascinating look at Jack London's life.

have you been following the new summer series "Traveler"? On The Road played a somewhat pivotal role in the opening episodes. I think you would enjoy the show.

Swan- no I don't get much tv in my life, even with the new internet/cable- I'll have to look into it.. The only thing I've been watching lately are downloaded episodes of Trailer Park Boys...
