Did Jack Kerouac mean for this to be read? Or am I getting some stupid thing we just published just because?

From what I've read, he fought with the publishers to leave it the way he wrote it. Whether or not this is true, I don't know. The way he wrote it, he was putting everything on the page and that would be a hard thing to let go of.

I do know he crossed out a lot of things that he didn't like in the first place, did they stay faithful to that? I also wonder how the end works out, since a dog ate it.
