A Taste of Kerouac

I found this great old TV footage of Beat poet Jack Kerouac on The Steve Allen Show. When I wrote the poem for The Cat Piano, I was heavily inspired by Kerouac’s style of writing. I love his wordplay and even the way he phrases the sentences as he says them. If you haven’t heard or read of any of Kerouac’s stuff, then go and get yourself a copy of his novel ‘On The Road’ or one of his others. You will not be dissapointed.
