I think it’s a legacy of terrific, extraordinarily beautiful prose. I think that’s the part of him that’s going to last. His work is so alive on the page, it just quivers with life. It’s so full of music and mood changes. It’s like he’s in the room with you. He has an immediacy that a lot of other writing doesn’t have.
—Jack Kerouac’s legacy, according to Joyce Johnson
