Jack Kerouac would have turned 91 on March 12. Even though he died in 1969, Kerouac’s influence on American literature is still felt today.

 

“Soon it got dusk, a grapy dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgandy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries.”
― Jack KerouacOn the Road
