From Library Journal
Published in 1968 (LJ 2/15/68) shortly before the author's untimely death the following year at age 47, this is more or less a biography of Kerouac's fictional alter ego, Jack Duluoz, which, of course, means that it is really an autobiography of Kerouac himself. The book covers Kerouac's/ Duluoz's life during the years 1935-46.
