Good Blonde and Others.

Jack Kerouac. Grey Fox, 1993, xiii + 201 pp. Paper: $11.95.

Good Blonde & Others collects his nonfiction: magazine articles, introductions, his "Last Word" columns from Escapade, even some sports columns he wrote for the Saint Petersburg Independent in 1965--virtually everything (aside from the pieces in Lonesome Traveler) he wrote apart from his novels and poetry. None of it is mere bread-and-butter journalism: it's all enlivened by Kerouac's wit and musical sentences, his whimsy and passion. This is an invaluable collection, carefully edited by Donald Allen and warmly introduced by Robert Creeley.
