Kerouac's 'lost' book published
American author Jack Kerouac's first ever novel, which was thought to be lost, has been published 40 years after his death.

The American writer, who was hailed the king of the Beat generation and a hero to many young men, penned The Sea Is My Brother aged 20, based on his years as a merchant seaman.

It features correspondence with his best friend Sebastian Sampas and recalls his "life and experiences" at sea, says the book's editor Dawn Ward.

"This book is really quite important as it shows how Jack developed his writing process," she says.

Posted here because it seems to refer to his own life. Happy to move to fiction if considered to be more appropriate.
