Glenn Horowitz Publishes the Letters of Jack Kerouac to Ed White

The Letters of Jack Kerouac to Ed White, 1947-1969. Glenn Horowitz's latest catalogue documents an important collection of five dozen lengthy letters and postcards written by Jack Kerouac to Ed White, the majority unpublished and composed prior to the 1957 publication of On the Road. White and Kerouac met in 1946 as undergraduates at Columbia University and White’s suggestion that Kerouac spontaneously “sketch” his ideas in a pocket notebook greatly impacted his friend’s narrative style - Kerouac would later confess to Neal Cassady, “It’s the only way to write.” These letters chart an important friendship from its Columbia days onward and document the writing and publication of Kerouac’s major novels.


93 pp.; 6 x 9 inches; pictorial wrappers. $25.
