“Perhaps, when we remember wars, we should take off our clothes and paint ourselves blue and go on all fours all day long and grunt like pigs. That would surely be more appropriate than noble oratory and shows of flags and well-oiled guns.” — Kurt Vonnegut, Cat’s Cradle

“Using a manual typewriter in a New York City loft, Jack Kerouac produced the original manuscript of On the Road during a three-week period in the spring of 1951.
Kerouac produced the continuous scroll by taping pages of semi-translucent paper together to feed the typewriter and write without interruption.
The text is single-spaced, without paragraphs, and edited in pencil by Kerouac.”
