"What makes you a writer? You develop an extra sense that partly excludes you from experience."

JACK KEROUAC (March  12, 1922 - October 21, 1969)

« He [Kerouac] was an athletic prose writer and he was tremendously honest. He gave himself to his art and I think he was one of the great prose writers in America. Perhaps in America, itself, the single greatest in the twentieth century. His breakthrough to a realization of spontaneous mind and the enormous inventive perceptive capacity of raw mind—“first thought is best thought-is something so noble that only a few great Buddhist poets have achieved that.» - Allen Ginsberg (x)
