A misfit for God …

… Jack Kerouac: Conservative, Catholic | National Review. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

As Kerouac approached death, he sought the solace of his faith especially through his mother, and he attempted to end his mercurial lifestyle by settling in St. Petersburg, Fla. He tried to return to regularly praying in the months before he died, when he was especially vulnerable and his health was ailing.
