Maggie Cassidy

Paperback

Price: $17.00

Overview

From the bard of the Beat Generation, Jack Kerouac’s Maggie Cassidy is a profoundly moving, autobiographical novel of adolescence and first love

One of the dozen books written by Jack Kerouac in the early and mid-1950s, Maggie Cassidy was not published until 1959, after the appearance of On the Road had made its author famous overnight. Long out of print, this touching novel of adolescent love in a New England mill town, with its straight-forward narrative structure, is one of Kerouac’s most accesible works. It is a remarkable, bittersweet evocation of the awkwardness and the joy of growing up in America.

Praise for Maggie Cassidy

"A bittersweet evocation of love, lust, and loss in small-town thirties America." –Ann Charters

"When someone asks 'Where does [Kerouac] get that stuff?' say: 'From you!' He lay awake all night listening with eyes and ears. A night of a thousand years. Heard it in the womb, heard it in the cradle, heard it in school, heard it on the floor of life's stock exchange where dreams are traded for gold." –Henry Miller
