On the road with Jack Kerouac's reckless, spirited daughter Jan. Haunted by her famous father's legend, Jan Kerouac travels to Oregon, Casablanca, Tangier, London, New York, California, and Mexico as she collects lovers and husbands, indulges in drugs and drink, spends time in odd jobs and jail cells, and keeps the Beat flame alive. 16 photos.
