Dedication l.jpg
Dedication: in England

  • Jack Kerouac,new Buddha of American prose, who spit forth intelligence into eleven books written in half the number of years (1951-1956) -- On the Road, Visions of Neal, Dr. Sax, Springtime Mary, The Subterraneans, San Fransisco Blues, Some of the Dharma, Book of Dreams, Wake Up, Mexico City Blues, and Visions of Gerard -- creating a spontaneous bop prosody and original classic literature. Several phrases and the title of Howl are taken from him.

  • William Seward Burroughs,author of Naked Lunch, an endless novel which will drive everyone mad.

  • Neal Cassady,author of The First Third, an autobiography (1949) which enlightened Buddha.

  • All these books are published in Heaven.

  • [Lucien Carr, recently promoted to Night Bureau Manager of New York United Press.]
