Kerouac House - I am Alternate!


I am pleased to say I am the alternate choice to live in Jack Kerouac's old house for 3 months! The Kerouac House in Orlando, Florida, is the house Kerouac lived in with his mother when On The Road was published, made him famous, and where he subsequently wrote The Dharma Bums!

If Brian Turner, the soldier-poet known for his 2005 poetry volume Here, Bullet decides not to live in the house (from June-August 2009), I am first alternate choice!

Voila the house!

The Kerouac House is now run by the Kerouac Project of Orlando at http://www.kerouacproject.org/ Plus you can tour the Kerouac House here.

I recommend the Jack Kerouac biography called Memory Babe (his childhood nickname)- the most readable and detailed biography in my view. More about Jack can be found here.

  3. Thanks Murray - it would be great to host a trip down to Florida, and hang out with Jack's ghost. I'd enoy drinking on his porch at least!
