Editorial Reviews

Review

Katie Mills makes connections that illuminate the material for today’s readers as well as the future generations who will come to Beat literature looking for answers of their own. This is an important book— read it!”—Ann Charters, author of Kerouac: A Biography


“The Road Story and the Rebel contains some of the best discussion of road movies I have ever read, taking on at once fiction and nonfiction prose, film, TV, music, and the Internet. Katie Mills historicizes a half century of road phenomena, looks closely at socioeconomic and cultural developments, and argues convincingly that the genre has remained important at least in part because of its skill in moving from being a subculture into the mainstream and then successfully and vibrantly back.”—Ronald Primeau, author of Romance of the Road: The Literature of the American Highway



“Katie Mills offers a confident and sweeping overview of texts fully grounded in their historical and cultural contexts. Her expansive view retrieves some neglected texts and makes genuine contributions to our understanding of the post–World War II American road narrative.”—Corey K. Creekmur, University of Iowa

I got this book for a Road Film class I was taking. I was thoroughly surprised that I got a book in such high quality condition for so cheap!

Format: Paperback
This book is an awful excuse for research. Very little original thought was put into the creation of this book. It looks like Katie Mills wrote this to receive her PhD, and now is forcing her students to buy this drivel. It's kind of sad.
