    Though Jack Kerouac began thinking about the novel that was to become On the Road as early as 1947, it was not until three weeks in April 1951 that he wrote the first full draft that was satisfactory to him. Typed out as one long, single-spaced paragraph on eight long sheets of tracing paper that he later taped together to form a 120-foot scroll, this document is among the most significant, celebrated, and provocative artifacts in contemporary American literary history.

    Story
    If you could sum up On the Road in three words, what would they be?

    I absolutely love On The Road but the Original Scroll is even better. It is what Jack initially wrote before he was told to edit it for the novel and I am happy that I read what Jack initially wanted On The Road to be.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    LuAnne is my favorite character because her role in Jack and Neal adventures is put more emphasis than on the novel version.


    What does John Ventimiglia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ventimiglia brought to me more of how the characters were with his accents


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending when Jack thinks about the the two coasts, everything that is in between and Neal Cassady.


    Any additional comments?

    This is ideal for anyone who loves the Beat Generation.
