Moodily atmospheric, full of verve and energy, "Maggie Cassidy" is Kerouac's poignant tale of teenage romance in New England.
The story of Jack and Maggie, in love with the idea of being in love, looking ahead to marriage with hope and trepidation, is told with touching simplicity.
It skillfully captures both the intensity and the ordinariness of adolescent life, with its torments and complications and is a beautiful evocation of growing up in America.
