This Isn’t Folly, This Is Me

A publication of 76 excerpted manuscripts and letters to and from Jack Kerouac, the majority of them unpublished. The book includes his selected correspondence with individuals such as Neal Cassady, Allen Ginsberg, and William Burroughs. While this title “represent[s] only a fraction of the hundreds of letters and journal entries Kerouac wrote during his lifetime; nonethless, they contain the essence of what we need to know about him as a writer and as a man” (from the introduction by Joyce Johnson).

93pp.; 6″x9″; black paper wrappers.
