From the bard of the Beat Generation, Jack Kerouac's Maggie Cassidy is an autobiographical novel of young love, published in Penguin Modern Classics. Though publishers stopped Maggie Cassidy's Jack Duluoz and On the Road's Sal Paradise from sharing the same name, Kerouac meant the books to be two parts of the same life. While On the Road made Paradise (and Kerouac) a hero for generations to come of the disaffected and restless, Maggie Cassidy is an affectionate portrait of the teenager that made the man - of friendship and first love growing up in a New England mill town. Duluoz is a high school athletics and football star who meets Maggie Cassidy and begins a devoted, inconstant, tender adolescent love affair. It is one of the most sustained, poetic pieces of Kerouac's 'spontaneous prose'. Jack Kerouac (1922-69) was an American novelist, poet, artist and part of the Beat Generation. His first published novel, The Town and the City, appeared in 1950, but it was On the Road, published in 1957, that made Kerouac famous. Publication of his many other books followed, among them The Subterraneans, Big Sur, and The Dharma Bums. Kerouac died in Florida at the age of forty-seven. If you enjoyed Maggie Cassidy, you might like Kerouac's The Subterraneans and Pic, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.

The first two decades of the Cold War, 1945-65, Shear (English Pittsburg State U., Kansas) finds characterized by major shocks in world views, as the Soviet Union was transformed from a stalwart ally to deadly enemy, and enemies Germany, Japan, and Italy from hated foes to potential and geographically crucial friends. Also, there was that atomic bomb thing. He explores how the fiction reflected the period, including chapters on Saul Bellow, Peter Taylor, Jack Kerouac, and Kurt Vonnegut. He does not provide an index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.

TumbleWords, an anthology of works by 72 western writers, is the result of a Western States Arts Federation project developed to bring writers and their audiences together in direct and unforgettable ways. From 1992 to 1994 poets, novelists, short-story writers, and essayists from Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming gave readings and workshops in places where audiences have little, if any, access to contemporary writers. This anthology is a permanent record of the words spoken at those first TumbleWords readings.
