Original Version of "On the Road" to be Published

The Boston Globe noted last week that the unedited first version of Jack Kerouac's On the Road will be published next year, to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the work's original publication. Viking Penguin has the project. The original manuscript (on a 119-foot scroll) is currently touring the country, and is scheduled to appear in Kerouac's hometown of Lowell, MA, next summer.
