Publisher's Summary

Writer Joyce Johnson talks about her relationship to Beat icon Jack Kerouac, and her new book, Door Wide Open: A Beat Love Affair in Letters on this edition of Fresh Air. In 1957, Johnson started a relationship with the then little-known writer Kerouac. Nine months later, Kerouac's Beat classic On the Road was published. Johnson will talk about her two-year, tumultuous love affair with Kerouac, how the publication of On the Road changed Kerouac, and she'll talk about what it was like being young and female and part of the Manhattan bohemian scene. Door Wide Open contains many letters sent to Johnson by Kerouac. Johnson is also the author of 3 novels, including In the Night Cafe. Her memoir Minor Characters won the National Book Critics Circle award. (Broadcast Date: July 19, 2000)
