The First Third & Other Writings by Neal Cassady

£30.00

This is the original, much lost-and-found book of autobiographical writing by the “real life hero” of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road: a collection of the actual writing Cassady did, and does not include transcriptions of the myriad, scattered tape-recordings he made mostly during a later period when Kerouac dropped out of his speeding sights and he drove Ken Kesey’s bus with its destination-sign reading FURTHER. He never got to live “the last third”.

2nd printing, published in 1972, USA
