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, in an apartment on West 20th Street in Manhattan, that he wrote the first full draft that was satisfactory to him.

The narrator for this book was perfectly cast. Anyone who regularly listens to audio books knows how important this is and in this they nailed it. Will definitively re-listen.
