really liked it
bookshelves: adults

The book confirms what you probably already knew: Jack Kerouac wasn't Father of the Year. He denied Jan, but I think he would have liked her. She grows up to be like one of his characters; her memoir shows her to be as zany and adventurous and damaged as any of them. Part bullshit artist, part explorer, she tells a story that is always just this side of believable. I really liked it.
