On the Road: The Original Scroll

Five decades after it was first published, Jack Kerouac's seminal Beat novel On the Road finally finds its way to the big screen, in a production from award-winning director Walter Salles (Motorcycle Diaries) starring Sam Riley (Control, Brighton Rock), Garret Hedlund (Friday Night Lights), Kristen Stewart (Twilight), Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams and Viggo Mortensen.

This edition is transcribed from the original manuscript: hundreds of typed pages taped together by Kerouac to form a 'scroll', published word for word as it was originally composed.

Sal Paradise (Sam Riley), a young innocent, joins his hero Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), a traveller and mystic, the living epitome of Beat, on a breathless, exuberant ride back and forth across the United States. Their hedonistic search for release or fulfilment through drink, sex, drugs and jazz becomes an exploration of personal freedom, a test of the limits of the American dream. A brilliant blend of fiction and autobiography, Jack Kerouac's exhilarating novel swings to the rhythms of 1950s underground America, racing towards the sunset with unforgettable exuberance, poignancy and autobiographical passion. One of the most influential and important novels of the 20th century, On the Road is the book that launched the Beat Generation and remains the bible of that literary movement.

'The most beautifully executed, the clearest and the most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as "beat"'

Medlemmers vurdering

M
Marlow – 04.03.2010

– Den forsiktige Sal og den noe villere Dean, Sals forbilde, reiser på kryss og tvers av et USA på slutten av førtitallet, i et land preget av optimisme etter krigen. De er hele tiden hungrige etter mer av alt; damer, reiser, byer, fester, og møter mange slags folk og skjebner. "On the road" er akkurat hva de er, rastløse i livet og i sin søken etter meningen med det. Det humper bortover, boka har få store opp- eller nedturer, men gjør likevel stort inntrykk hos leseren. Stappfull av funderinger, jazz, poesi og storartede skildringer av tiden den er skrevet i (1948-56), er boka en tidløs klassiker.
