This volume of correspondence between the two most celebrated members of the Beat Generation documents their process of creation as well as the unfolding of their remarkable friendship, one which was filled with immense pathos and spiritual depth. Through this exchange, Kerouac and Ginsberg emerge first and foremost as writers of artistic passion, innovation, and genius. From their initial encounter in 1944 until Kerouac’s untimely death in 1969, the letters – two-thirds of which have never been published before – speak of the endless struggle, anguish, hard work, and sacrifice involved in giving form to their literary visions. Index. 500p.
