Description - Neal Cassady by David Sandison

This fascinating and in-depth biography of Neal Cassady takes a look at the man who achieved immortality as Dean Moriaty, the central character in Jack Kerouac's "On The Road". A charismatic, funny, articulate and formidably intelligent man, Cassady was also a compulsive womanizer who lived life on the edge. His naturalistic, conversational writing style inspired Kerouac, who lifted a number of passages verbatim and uncredited from Cassady's letters for significant episodes of "On The Road". Drawing on a wealth of new research and will full co-operation from central figures in his life - including Carolyn Cassady and Ken Kesey - this account captures Cassady's unique blend of inspired lunacy and deep spirituality.
