Who wouldn’t like to bounce into a 1947 Cadillac and barrel down a lonesome highway with Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty? The affinity to “lean forward to the following crazy venture underneath the skies,” as Jack Kerouac place it in the most popular road novel ever, is as convincing as ever, regardless of that Route 66 has long been obscured by a four-lane interstate.
Thus imagine a scenario in which it’s somewhat strange that Kerouac’s escape fantasy seduces us, despite the fact that the ladies in the novel are minimal more than ciphers. Senior member’s significant accomplices are Marylou, depicted as “a really blonde with gigantic ringlets of hair like an ocean of golden tresses. . . . Be that as it may, outside of being a sweet young lady, she was horrendously moronic and equipped for doing terrible things,” and her partner, the dazzling if unfortunate, basically quiet Camille. (Poor Sal—a stand-in for Jack himself—never appears to attach with anybody for long, and lives for the most part in Dean’s reflected magnificence, and actually Kerouac himself wound up a cranky old drunk living in his mom’s home and spouting odious right-wing rhetoric.)
Regardless of gender, it is in our birthright to need to floor the quickening agent on vacation weekends, particularly this up and coming one, meaning as it does the bittersweet final blast of summer. “Our battered bags were heaped on the walkway once more; we had longer ways to go,” Kerouac reflected. “However, regardless, the road is life.” Your Vuittons and Tumis and Rimowas may not be especially beat-up, but rather if the road is life, you better pack right!
