About the Author
Daniel C. Schechter is an American writer and translator living in the Netherlands.
Jorge García-Robles is a Mexican novelist, critic, and translator. He is the author of The Stray Bullet: William S. Burroughs in Mexico (Minnesota, 2013) as well as the translator of Kerouac's Lonesome Traveler, Tristessa, Mexico City Blues, Maggie Cassidy, and "Cerrada Medellín Blues" into Spanish.
"With such a wealth of literature concerning Kerouac already in existence, García-Robles doesn't concentrate on revisiting the facts. Instead, he uses quotes from Kerouac's fiction to trace his subject's inner life and place Mexico within the larger context of the famed novelist's artistic evolution."--Publishers Weekly
"A major addition to the current reevaluation of the Beat Generation."--American Book Review
