On the Road by Jack Kerouac

This is a deeply American book, full of hope, open to the infinite possibilities that lie ahead. It is based on a number of trips across America which Kerouac made with a friend, in which they had a lot of fun with drugs and sex, being broke and making friends. It is a book full of carelessness and youth and the search for sensation.
Jack Kerouac was born in Massachusetts.
