Clip: On the Highway of Love, Jack Kerouac Divides Men and Women

16 Aug

The Millions published my essay “On the Highway of Love, Jack Kerouac Divides Men and Women.”

The article made the headline in the Page-Turner section of The New Yorker.

It also made it into the On the Shelf section of The Paris Review.

The article was mentioned in The Atlantic Wire.

Poets & Writers mentioned the article in their Daily News on 8/14/12 … and then again on 8/15/12 to note the response the article has gotten.

That second P&W write up was mentioning Slate‘s response.

Jezebel also devoted a whole article to my article.

Guy Librarian referenced the discussion.

The article was also mentioned on The Daily Beast.

The Huffington Post added commentary to the discussion.

8/19/12; 8/22/12: This post was updated to include additional mentions.

      Thanks, David! I feel very fortunate to be working with Paul. I appreciated his work long before I ever began collaborating with him. He is a thorough researcher and has such great insight. I hope our book will shed new light and bring new readers to Kerouac’s work. I want to honor his LITERATURE.

[The characters] get to travel all over the world and fall in love. I’d be too scared [to go on the road].” Hm… sounds familiar. […]
