... with Patrick Kurp and Anthony Daniels, but I think we part ways On the Cult of Kerouac. The link to Daniels's piece isn't working, so I've only been able to read bits and pieces of what he has to say. I can't tell if he has read anything of Kerouac's other than On the Road. I happen to think - and plan on elaborating the point in print in the not too distant future - that it has been Kerouac's misfortune to be judged solely on the basis of On the Road. I think he wrote better books and, like any author, deserves to be judged on the basis of his best, not his most famous, work.
Update: Thanks to Dave Lull, I have read Daniels's piece and he does not seem to be familiar with any Kerouac other than On the Road. He also doesn't seem to consider that what he discerns in the book is precisely what Kerouac may have been trying to get across.
