On The Road

Published on September 5, 1957, this year marks the 50th anniversary of Jack Kerouac's On the Road. Gilbert Millstein reviewed the book in the New York Times on that day and wrote the following:

"But the fact is that, On the Road is the most beautifully executed, the clearest and the most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as "beat," and whose prinicipal avatar he is."
