Just after his father’s death, Sal Paradise, an aspiring New York writer, meets Dean Moriarty, a devastatingly charming ex-con, married to the very liberated and seductive Marylou. Sal and Dean bond instantly. Determined not to get locked in to a constricted life, the two friends cut their ties and take to the road with Marylou. Thirsting for freedom, the three young people head off in search of the world, of other encounters, and of themselves.
"King of the Beats", Jack Kerouac was a vagabond angel whose spontaneous prose placed him among some of the most important literary giants of the 20th century. In his masterpiece work, On the Road, he puts himself into the character of Sal Paradise, a slightly withdrawn young man fascinated by Dean Moriarty, who took him under wing as they took off across country.
