We are so excited about Joyce Johnson’s biography of Jack Kerouac, forthcoming from Viking this September! Joyce read an excerpt from THE VOICE IS ALL for H.I.P.’s launch event, and it was absolutely brilliant. Check out the starred PW review of this title, here, and stay updated via Joyce’s brand new Facebook fan page.
An intimate of Kerouac who has chronicled his life and the beat culture (including in her award-winning 1983 memoir, Minor Characters), Johnson brings an insider’s perspective to this insightful study of how Kerouac found his literary voice. —PW
