On the Road : some news

Since I published my post about On the Road, I read an article in a magazine about it. In 2007, a new version of the novel was published in the United States. This version corresponds to the first written by Jack Kerouac in 1951 on a 50m-long paper roll and was refused by publishers. Apparently, it includes pages that were eliminated and there aren’t anymore alias for the persons (Neal Cassady is no longer named Dean Moriarty and Jack Kerouac appears under his real name). The text isn’t split into chapters.

This new version has just been published in French, so it might be better to read that translation instead of the 1960 one.
