Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This newly-revised edition-originally published in 1973-of the haiku Jack Kerouac, Albert Saijo, and Lew Welch jotted down on the road from San Francisco to New York in 1959, are dense, earthy incarnations of life on the road: "A coral colored Cadillac/ in Texas/ Threw gravel all over us,/ our beat jeep/ -Our windshield is nicked/ but our eyes/ are/ CLEAR..." Albert recounts their November trip in Lew's Jeepster, making the big city scene, visiting Jack's home in Northport on Long Island, and the long drive back west. The book also includes letters to Kerouac from Lew Welch in Reno.

Synopsis:

A rich slice of Beat history, Trip Trap is Albert Saijo's account of driving Jack Kerouac with Lew Welch from San Francisco to New York in 1959. It includes the poems they jotted down in notebooks along the way; their experiences in the city; a visit to Jack's home in Northport, Long Island; and Lew's letters to Jack about the return trip and his life in Reno.
