Description - Jack Kerouac is Pregnant by Aurelie Sheehan

"It takes so long to see you are a slave," muses one character in these lyrical, sometimes bitingly funny chronicles of women breaking out of imposed roles. Jack Kerouac Is Pregnant chronicles the dreams of misplaced waitresses, prostitutes and other working girls, the survival techniques of secretaries too smart to take orders. Using narrative elements poetically, Sheehan subverts the notion of linear storytelling, creating kaleidoscopic stories by layering and contrasting various elements.
