What Happened to Kerouac, DVD

What Happened to Kerouac DVD

Directed by Richard Lerner


Documentary that examines the life and work of the late US author, Jack Kerouac.

Kerouac is best known for his novel 'On the Road', a heavily autobiographical account of his travels across America that is credited with playing a part in spawning the counter-culture of the 1960s.

Part of the appeal of the novel to younger readers was its unashamed account of a life lived to the point of excess and it was Kerouac's long-standing abuse of alcohol that led to his death in 1969 at the age of 47.

The documentary includes contributions from a number of people who were close to Kerouac and the author's famous appearances on TV shows hosted by Steve Allen and William F.
